I am a 4th year Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Management Sciences, University of Waterloo. I am fortunate to be advised by Dr. Sibel Alumur Alev. I have done my Undergraduate and Masters studies in Industrial Engineering. During my undergraduate and graduate studies, I worked on modeling and solving optimization problems by the means of mathematical modeling, decomposition techniques, programming, and data mining. My current research falls under the umbrella of facility and hub location problems. In my recent study, I am applying large-scale decomposition algorithms (e.g., Benders decomposition) to solve large-scale profit maximizing hub location problems. My research interests include hub location and network design analysis, supply chain and logistics network design, location theory, and decomposition methods for large-scale optimization.
