I am a PhD Candidate in the Management Science and Operations department at London Business School, advised by Prof. Kamalini Ramdas. I also work with Prof. Ryan W. Buell from Harvard Business School and Prof. Sarang Deo from Indian School of Business. My research goal is to use data and models to better understand operational innovation in healthcare delivery and help solve real problems in this area. My current research focuses on healthcare delivery interventions for creating better patient outcomes, and access to healthcare through collaborations with the Aravind Eye Hospital, in India and the Cooper University Health Care, in Camden, New Jersey.
In 2020, I was awarded the Professor Sir James Ball Annual PhD Award which is given to one student per year across all PhD students at London Business School. I was a finalist in the 2020 MSOM Student Paper Competition, and in the INFORMS Health Application Society (HAS) Bonder Scholarship for Applied Operations Research in Health Services in 2018.
Prior to starting my PhD, I got my Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Industrial Engineering at Bilkent University, where I received the Academic Excellence in Master of Science Studies award.
In September 2021, I will join Bilkent University Faculty of Business Administration as an Assistant Professor of Operations Management.
