UntitledI am currently working as assistant 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 between 2007 and 2012. Prior to my higher education in the U.S., I went to Istanbul Technical University, Turkey and majored in Industrial Engineering in 2007. 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.
