Dr. Srinivas Raghavendra speaking at the international conference on Gender and Macroeconomics

Dr. Srinivas Raghavendra recently spoke at the international conference on Gender and Macroeconomics organised by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington DC. Dr. Raghavendra’s talk was based on his work on the macroeconomic loss due to violence against women.

Dr. Raghavendra’s research is focused on a number of major themes in the areas of Macroeconomics, Finance and Complex systems, and Political Economy. The broad theme that connects various strands of his research is the issue of dynamic interrelation between economic growth and distribution of income, and his current work focuses on this question in the context of financialisation. Dr. Raghavendra also served as the Associate Director for Multidisciplinary Research in the Whitaker Institute. Dr Raghavendra collaborates with people in two institutions in India; Jawaharlal Nehr University (JNU) in New Delhi – his alma mater, and also the Indian Institute of Sciences in Bangalore (IISc).
