Onur Ozturk received his PhD in Industrial Engineering from the Grenoble Institute of Technologie in 2012. Following his doctoral studies, he worked two years at the Ivey Business School as a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Gregory S. Zaric. In 2014, he joined ESIEE Paris, Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée, where he worked as an assistant professor until 2017. Onur Ozturk is interested in large scale optimization applied to problems originated from healthcare and transport sectors. His expertise in the theory of scheduling and simulation allows him a couple optimization methods with simulation models. As part of a European project, he served in the Efficacity Institute and developed a decision making tool for the optimal transportation of goods through the urban railway used for public transport in the region of Île de France. Business analytics, operations management, stochastic modeling and scheduling theory are among his teaching interests.
