Lecturer Daniil's research focuses on energy and commodities markets. It provides a useful link between heterodox approaches to studying repeated auctions with constraints and market power, as well as market design policy issues. He is a developer of the ACEWEM computational laboratory, a multi-agent simulation tool designed to study power auctions. Daniil's other research interest focuses on economic growth. His contribution to existing research is based on the application of advanced statistical tools that can capture nonlinear functional relationships between macroeconomic variables. Daniil currently teaches Mathematics for Economics and Econometrics.
