Description of research and professional experience:

My research is connected with mathematical models of conflicts and cooperation using game theory, cognitive maps, decision theory and artificial intelligence. The interactions between several agents are presented as a game. The system of each agent's beliefs is presented as a cognitive map (digraph of causal links between agent concepts). The solution of the game is obtained in the form of the pure strategy Nash equilibrium. The model of information control is studied in a game with agents’ inconsistent beliefs that are presented by linear cognitive maps. The conditions of information control possibility and information control meaningfulness are obtained.

I have had experience with fuzzy logic inference systems, parallel computing, programming in C/C++, C#, Delphi, Matlab, R.
