I am an assistant professor at the Industrial Engineering Program, Sabancı University. My current research focuses on developing global optimization methods for mixed-integer nonlinear programming problems arising in engineering optimization.
Before joining Sabancı University, I spent one year as a postdoctoral fellow at the Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University, where I worked with Gérard Cornuéjols on portfolio optimization and stochastic programming problems.
I obtained my PhD degree of Operations Research at the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology. My advisors were Santanu S. Dey and X. Andy Sun. My dissertation focused on developing global optimization methods for optimal power flow and transmission switching problems in electric power systems.
