Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Finance
  • Microeconomics

Howard Kunreuther focuses on Actuarial science, Government, Microeconomics, Risk management and Casualty insurance. The study of Actuarial science is intertwined with the study of Prospect theory in a number of ways. His studies in Government integrate themes in fields like Risk financing, Natural disaster, Risk assessment and Natural hazard.

His work on Nash equilibrium, Supply and demand and Preference as part of general Microeconomics research is frequently linked to Perpetual inventory, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. The study incorporates disciplines such as Private sector, Bureaucracy and Public administration in addition to Risk management. When carried out as part of a general Casualty insurance research project, his work on Property insurance is frequently linked to work in Offset, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His most cited work include:

  • Framing, Probability Distortions, and Insurance Decisions (616 citations)
  • Disaster insurance protection: Public policy lessons (573 citations)
  • Mitigating Disaster Losses through Insurance (447 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Actuarial science, Risk management, Finance, Incentive and Insurance policy. His Actuarial science research incorporates elements of Natural disaster and Flood insurance. His Risk management study incorporates themes from Risk analysis and Risk assessment.

His study in Finance is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Government and Terrorism. Howard Kunreuther combines subjects such as Public economics and Investment with his study of Incentive. The concepts of his Casualty insurance study are interwoven with issues in Insurance law, Business interruption insurance and Key person insurance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Actuarial science (44.86%)
  • Risk management (17.29%)
  • Finance (15.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Actuarial science (44.86%)
  • Flood insurance (9.50%)
  • Flood myth (9.81%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Howard Kunreuther mainly focuses on Actuarial science, Flood insurance, Flood myth, National Flood Insurance Program and Incentive. His research integrates issues of Purchasing, Risk aversion and Expected utility hypothesis in his study of Actuarial science. Howard Kunreuther has included themes like Risk perception and Emergency management in his Flood insurance study.

His study on Flood myth also encompasses disciplines like

  • Natural disaster that intertwine with fields like Government,
  • Environmental resource management that intertwine with fields like Environmental planning. The various areas that he examines in his National Flood Insurance Program study include Natural resource economics and Public policy. His Incentive research includes themes of Choice architecture, Public economics and Risk management.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Integrated Risk and Uncertainty Assessment of Climate Change Response Policies (217 citations)
  • Integrating human behaviour dynamics into flood disaster risk assessment (138 citations)
  • IPCC Fifth Assessment Synthesis Report-Climate Change 2014 Synthesis Report (120 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • Finance
  • China

Howard Kunreuther mainly investigates Actuarial science, Flood myth, Flood insurance, National Flood Insurance Program and Insurance policy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Anticipation and Expected utility hypothesis. His Flood myth study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Flooding, Environmental resource management, Risk analysis, Vulnerability and Risk management.

His Risk management research incorporates themes from Variety, Private sector and Terrorism. His work carried out in the field of Flood insurance brings together such families of science as Response efficacy, Emergency management, Protection motivation theory, Flood hazard and Politics. His research on Insurance policy concerns the broader Finance.
