Biography

Dr. Raghavendra’s received his PhD degree from the Jawaharalal Nehru University in New Delhi. His doctoral dissertation was a study on the dynamics of Economic growth and Income distribution in the traditions of Michael Kalecki and John Maynard Keynes, and his subsequent research is focused on a variety of themes in Macroeconomic theory, Financial economics, Political Economy, and Complex Systems. His current research is in the area of monetary macroeconomics with a particular focus on the impact of financialisation on the wider economy.


Dr. Raghavendra also served as the Associate Director for Multidisciplinary Research in the Whitaker Institute at NUI Galway where his role was to create the capacity for multidisciplinary research using novel research methodologies for addressing global and regional public policy issues. The Social Sciences Computing Hub, the project which he led and successfully established, is one such capacity building project that provides a unique facility for multidisciplinary research in NUI Galway.

Research Interests

My research is focused on a number of major themes in the areas of Macroeconomics, Financial Economics, Political Economy, and Complex Systems. My doctoral dissertation examined the complex nature of economic fluctuations arising from the dynamic interaction between the level and the distribution of income in a macroeconomy. Following the doctoral study, I was drawn towards understanding the nature and causes of complex fluctuations that render the real economies highly fragile and unstable.


Arising from this interest and in order to seek alternative methods and empirical tools for characterizing the nature of the complexity that is embedded in the real economic phenomena, I became deeply interested in the Complex Systems literature. I have explored the complexity of real economic phenomena, particularly with reference to the financial markets, using the models and tools of Statistical Mechanics. The research papers that were published in this line empirically examined the nature of complexity that characterizes financial markets. This in turn reinforced the claim that the equilibrium framework that is being used in the study of economic systems is too restrictive. I continued to work along these lines to develop theoretical models that would help generate plausible testable hypotheses on the nature of complexity in financial markets. The papers that I have published to date in this domain reflect this line of my research inquiry.




The complex systems focus of my research at this time provided me with a set of alternative metaphors, methods, and tools that equipped me to explore some of the causes of complex fluctuations in the real economies. Further, I saw the role of money as the substantive element that would be useful in understanding macroeconomic complexity. In a recent paper in the journal Metroeconomica, I suggest a macroeconomic model where the endogenous nature of money and its interaction with the real sector of the economy generates the abrupt or catastrophic transitions akin to that which we witnessed in the current crisis. Arising from the research for the Metroecnomica paper, I am currently working on the implications of finance led growth on income distribution and effective demand. The research for the Metroeconomica paper has also opened up further problems and connections to a range of issues in economic development and including the interrelation between gender, finance, and economic development. 


These research strands, the theoretical and the empirical, or the substantive and the methodological, of my research portfolio are not independent of each other. The research work that I undertook in the area of complex systems has in fact provided me with alternative frameworks, methods, and tools for understanding the nature and the causes of the complex dynamics of real economies. 


My research perspective and outlook is informed by the principle that economic systems cannot be viewed as independent from the wider socio-political context. A number of my recent papers exhibit this informing principle of my research, that economic systems cannot be viewed as independent from the wider socio-political context, and provide a political economic analysis of the current economic crisis. I am currently working on a number of papers on various aspects of the economy from the point of view of political economy in the wider context of financial globalization.


My publications to date reflect the articulated research agenda. I have published papers in high-level international journals in the fields of Economics, Finance, Physics, Engineering, and Political Economy. These include MetroeconomicaZeitschrift für NationalökonomieEuropean Physical Journal BIEEE: Computational Intelligence and Financial Engineering (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers)Economics Research International; and Economic and Political Weekly.

Teaching Interests


  

A lamp can never light another lamp unless it continues to hum its own flame - Rabindranath Tagore


My philosophy of teaching draws from the wisdom and inspiration of Rabindranath Tagore’s magical words. I consider knowledge as the light that burns the darkness in human mind and teaching is the burning stick that renders the light to burn eternally. The duty of a teacher then is to perform the role of the burning stick to ensure that the light burns eternally. And such a role cannot be fulfilled unless the burning stick continues to hum its own flame.

My teachers instilled in me the ability to hum, the burning desire for knowledge, which I consider as fundamental to teaching and as a teacher I endeavor to pass on to my students so as to keep the light burning eternally. I was blessed with great teachers, who taught me not just the subject of study, but also, more importantly, the method of learning itself. In other words, they taught me how to learn.

 

The approach to learning for me is being both analytical and critical. By analytical, I mean the ability to unpack the difficult concepts and redefine them to convey meaning in a more transparent manner. By critical, I mean the ability to understand and query the methods of inquiry and reasoning, even if it is passed on from our own teachers. These two aspects of learning cannot be supported with out a thorough understanding of the nature, the philosophy and the methodology of the subject of study, and thus the method of systematic enquiry or research is inseparable from these two aspects of learning.  It is this method of enquiry based learning underpinned by the philosophy of teaching instilled by my teachers is what continues to hum the flame in me.

 

I started my teaching career in the Madras School of Economics in Chennai in India in the year 2000 immediately after I had submitted my doctoral dissertation. I have developed and taught modules on Macroeconomic Theory, Financial Economics and Quantitative Methods for Economics for the masters’ students (M.Sc. in Economics). I have taught a wide ranging courses within the ambit of my research expertise and I have improved and introduced novelties in the modules within the discipline of economics and have also developed innovative interdisciplinary modules that arose from my research collaborations with collaborators from other disciplines such as Mathematics/Physics, Engineering and Psychology. For example, I designed and taught a course on "Dynamical Systems Approach to Cognition" to the advanced Undergraduate students in Psychology in 2008. I have also developed a novel module with Dr. Petri Piiroinen titled "Modeling, Analysis and Simulation in 2010 and the course has now been integrated in the curricula of the B.Sc. Financial Mathematics and Economics program. A sample list of courses that I have taught are given below:
