I am a research fellow at the Industrial Engineering department of Balikesir University, Turkey. I obtained my PhD degree in 2015 at the University of Exeter upon completing my thesis on modelling and optimisation of complex assembly lines, funded by a 4-year scholarship from Turkish Council of Higher Education. My research has been published in several esteemed journals including Computers & Operations Research, International Journal of Production Economics, International Journal of Production Research and Computers & Industrial Engineering. My areas of research interests focus on modelling and optimisation of modern manufacturing systems (assembly line balancing in particular), production planning of additive manufacturing machines and application of modern algorithms on sophisticated engineering problems.
I have served as a member of Editorial Board of An International Journal of Optimization and Control: Theories & Applications (IJOCTA) since 2011, IAES International Journal of Artificial Intelligence (IJ-AI) since 2012, and Journal of Computer Sciences and Applications since 2013. I have also carried out peer-reviewing works for many reputed academic journals including Computers & Operations Research (Elsevier), Applied Soft Computing (Elsevier), International Journal of Production Economics (Elsevier), International Journal of Production Research (Taylor & Francis), Assembly Automation (Emerald), Neural Computing and Applications (Springer) and Journal of Facilities Management (Emerald). I involved in organisation of well-recognised conferences, such as OR55 - The OR Society Annual Conference (UK), YOR18 - The OR Society Biennial Conference (UK), and 19th National Ergonomics Congress (Turkey). I have been accredited to the level of the Candidate Associate of the Operational Research Society UK (CandORS).
