UntitledI am currently working as associate professor in the department of Mechanical, and Industrial Engineering at University of New Haven (Here is a link to my CV). I previously worked as assistant professor of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at North Dakota State University for 2 years and postdoctoral research associate in the Dept. of Civil, Environmental and Construction Engineering at University of Central Florida for about a year. I obtained my Ph.D. in Mechanical and Systems Engineering and M.S. degrees in ‘Industrial and Systems Engineering’ and ‘Civil Engineering’ at Ohio University. Prior to my higher education in the U.S., I went to Istanbul Technical University, Turkey and majored in Industrial Engineering. My research interests cover a variety of topics that include sustainability assessment of social, environmental, and economic aspects of engineered systems, transportation sustainability & safety, applied operations research and meta-heuristic optimization, parametric & non-parametric statistical modeling, data analytics and mining, and dynamic simulation modeling. I current have over 40 peer-reviewed research articles, book chapters and conference proceedings related to sustainable development, manufacturing system design & control, supply chain management, transportation safety and predictive modeling & machine learning.
