Short Bio:


I am currently Professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering at Koç University. I received my B.S. degree from METU (Ankara, Turkey) in 1990 and M.S. and Ph.d. degrees from Northeastern University (Boston, MA, USA) in 1992 and 1996. Prior to joining Koç University, I was a faculty member at Ecole Centrale Paris (France). I spent the 2008-2009 academic year as a visiting professor at Northwestern University.


My main research interests are in operations research and stochastic modeling with applications to production, inventory and service systems. More information on my research can be found in my research page.
