Assistant Prof. İhsan Yanıkoğlu, a member of our Faculty of Engineering, won the best paper award for Operations Engineering and Analytics for 2017 in recognition of his study “Robust-Dual Response Optimization” published in the international journal “IISE Transactions”.
Assistant Prof. İhsan Yanıkoğlu attracted attention with his detailed study on the development of new methods and solutions for optimization problems with indefinite parameters and their application to the real world. Assistant Prof. received his award during the annual conference of the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers in Pittsburgh, US.
About IISE (Institute of Industrial and System Engineers):
Systems world view. Productivity. Efficiency. These are words that describe the distinctive attributes of industrial engineering. IISE is the world's largest professional society dedicated solely to the support of the industrial engineering profession and individuals involved with improving quality and productivity. Founded in 1948, IISE is an international, nonprofit association that provides leadership for the application, education, training, research, and development of industrial engineering.
ISEs figure out a better way to do things and work in a wide array of professional areas, including management, manufacturing, logistics, health systems, retail, service and ergonomics. They influence policy and implementation issues regarding topics such as sustainability, innovation and Six Sigma. And like the profession, ISEs are rooted in the sciences of engineering, the analysis of systems, and the management of people.
İhsan Yanıkoğlu received his B.Sc. (2007) and M.Sc. (2009) degrees in Industrial Engineering from Bilkent University, and his M.Phil. (2010) and Ph.D. (2014) degrees in Operations Research and Econometrics from Tilburg University. His research interests are mainly based on optimization, namely, robust, stochastic, and discrete optimization. In the recent 4-5 years his research focuses on developing practicable robust optimization methodologies and their applications.
