Dr Tinashe Nyamunda is a historian of the financial history of Southern Africa during the twentieth century. His other research interests are in the field of economic history, having researched and published on artisanal diamond and gold mining, informal trade and remittances, among others. More particularly, his work is concerned with examining state making, economy, and the ways in which money work.

Dr Nyamunda researches and publishes on various aspects of African monetary history in ways that locate the continent's position within the context of international exchange relations. He attempts to use this kind of research to speak to the various opportunities that African countries can use to chart a trajectory that challenges its peripheralisation and begins to develop in ways that are not informed by self-interested and exploitative global north impositions.
