Bhabani is a political economist and works as Reader in Business Management and Programme Director of Business, Management and Marketing, University for the Creative Arts, UK.

Before moving to UCA, he worked in the universities in Sussex, Glasgow, Manchester, York and Coventry. His research interests consist of four closely interrelated and mutually guiding programmes i.e. i) political economy, business management, sustainable development, gender and environment in South Asia, ii) market, microfinance, religion, ethics, and social business, iii) faith, freedom, globalisation and governance and iv) Hindu religion and capitalism.

My research focuses on global south but the regional focus of his research is on the impacts of neoliberalism on social, cultural and economic transition of indigenous and rural communities in South Asia.
