I received my PhD in Feb. 2009 (called “candidate of physico-mathematical sciences” in Russia) and Specialist degrees in Applied Mathematics from Lomonosov Moscow State University. In Nov. 2008, I defended my PhD thesis on Parameterized Model Checking of Distributed Systems (in Russian) under supervision of Vladimir A. Zakharov and Ruslan L. Smeliansky.

How to parse my name: Igor (Игорь) is my first name and Konnov (Коннов) is my last name; I also bear the second name Vladimirovich (Владимирович) after my father, but it is usually omitted outside of Russia. That is — and this is for Google Scholar — my full  name is Igor Vladimirovich Konnov.

Please also note that there are other researchers, whose names are written as “Igor V. Konnov” or “I.V. Konnov”, and whose names I do not mention here to help Google Scholar. I cannot review papers on equilibrium problems.
