I am a Senior Lecturer in Management Science at the University of Southampton. My PhD is in Industrial Engineering, awarded by Bilkent University in 2005. My PhD dissertation titled Discrete Location Models for Content Distribution received an Honorable Mention from the INFORMS Telecommunications Section in April 2006. Prior to joining the University of Southampton in August 2007, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Alberta, CIRRELT and University of Montreal in Quebec.
My research interests revolve around mathematical modelling and optimisation of a variety of problems in distribution logistics, system (strategic) design of logistics networks; telecommunications network design; warehouse location; service network design in intermodal transportation; operational level planning in transport, vehicle routing and scheduling, railyard management; reducing the environmental hazards of freight logistics and transportation activities, in particular reduction of CO2 emissions.
