Ibrahim Kucukkoc


I am an Assistant Professor in the Industrial Engineering department at Balikesir University (Turkey) where I have been a faculty member since December 2009. I completed my Ph.D. at University of Exeter (UK) in 2015 upon completing my thesis on modelling and optimisation of complex assembly lines (funded by a 4-year scholarship from Turkish Council of Higher Education). I obtained my M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees from the Balikesir University (2011) and Selcuk University (2009) in industrial engineering.

My research interests lie in the area of 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 combinatorial optimisation problems. I have collaborated actively with researchers in several other disciplines, such as computer science and mechanical engineering. My publications appeared in various esteemed journals including Computers & Operations Research, International Journal of Production Economics, International Journal of Production Research, Computers & Industrial Engineering and Production Planning & Control.

I have served as a member of Editorial Board of An International Journal of Optimization and Control: Theories & Applications (IJOCTA) since 2011, Journal of Computer Sciences and Applications since 2013, News in Engineering since 2014 and Peertechz Journal of Computer Science and Engineering since 2016. I have also carried out peer-reviewing works for many reputed academic journals including Information Sciences (Elsevier), 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 the program and organisation committees of well-recognised conferences, such as CIE48 - The 48th International Conference on Computers and Industrial Engineering (Wellington/New Zealand), META'18 - The 7th International Conference on Metaheuristics and Nature Inspired Computing (Marrakech/Morocco), AICA215 - International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Control Automation (Phuket Island/Thailand), OR55 - The OR Society Annual Conference (Exeter/UK), YOR18 - The OR Society Biennial Conference (Exeter/UK), and 19th National Ergonomics Congress (Balikesir/Turkey) among others. I have been accredited to the level of the Candidate Associate of the Operational Research Society UK (CandORS).
