Denis Nekipelov

Associate Professor of Economics and Computer Science at the University of Virginia

Denis Nekipelov is an Associate Professor of Economics and Computer Science at the University of Virginia and a member of the academic advisory board of the School of Data Science. Nekipelov's work is aimed at the analysis and theory of scalable and efficient techniques that can be used to estimate the models of strategic behavior in large marketplaces. These techniques are developed by combination of statistical inference tools available in Econometrics and scalable algorithms coming from Computer Science. In the past 10 years Nekipelov collaborated with several online search platforms to help design and improve their marketplaces. Nekipelov received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Applied Physics and Mathematics at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and his Ph.D. in Economics from Duke University and has been a post-doctoral researcher at Microsoft Research - Silicon Valley.
