ABOUT FLAME

Story of the pioneer of Liberal Education in India

Consulting Dean for Research, Strategy and Development

Professor Bhavnani is an Adjunct Faculty member at FLAME University. Bhavnani's research explores the micro-foundations of violent conflict by means of agent-based computational modeling and disaggregated empirical analysis. More specifically, his work examines the endogenous relationships among: (i) the characteristics, beliefs, and interests of relevant actors; (ii) social mechanisms and emergent social structures that shape attitudes, decision-making and behavior; and (iii) patterns of conflict and violence.

At FLAME, Bhavnani serves as an advisor, collaborates on research with the Centre for Experimental Social Sciences (CESS), and works with a select number of advanced undergraduate students.

Bhavnani has an M.P.P. in Public Policy and a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
