Denis Nekipelov is an Associate Professor of Economics and Computer Science at the University of Virginia. 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 data-rich settings. These techniques are developed by combination of statistical inference tools available in Econometrics and scalable algorithms coming from Computer Science. His work also analyzes the limitations in empirical implementation of strategic behavior models. Nekipelov received his BS and MS in Applied Physics and Mathematics at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and his PhD in Economics from Duke University.
