I am the Founder/Managing Director of Datart and an Associate Professor of Industrial Engineering at Ozyegin University. I received my B.S. (2002) from Bilkent University and M.S. (2004) from Sabanci University, both in Industrial Engineering, and Ph.D. (2009) from the University of Florida in Industrial and Systems Engineering with a minor in Computer and Information Science and Engineering. I had worked as an Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering at the University of Houston from 2009 to 2013 and as a Director/Distinguished Scientist at Optym from 2019 to 2021.
