Bharath M. Palavalli

I design games and simulations to understand complex adaptive systems. I work in the areas of poverty, transport, energy, disaster management and urban planning; specifically, to improve planning and design of public policy.

My research interests are in the areas of Game Design, Game Theory, Agent-based modelling, Complex Adaptive Systems, Policy Design, Poverty and Inequality, Graph Theory, Information Retrieval, Information Communication Technologies and their effects.

I am the Co-Founder of Fields of View, a non-profit research group in Bangalore. Previously, I have designed agent-based simulation frameworks, games for safety and learning, and have worked in the areas of infrastructure policy, disaster management, and poverty.
