Research interests

My research interests lie in the field of operations research, particularly the area of integer programming and its supply chain-related applications. During my Ph.D. studies and postdoctoral positions, I have worked on a variety of optimization related research projects that are applied to different supply chains. My current postdoctoral research is focused on food safety and quality in different food supply chains (e.g., pasteurized fluid milk and spinach). I also have worked on other optimization problems in the areas of disaster-relief, bi-level network optimization, cybersecurity, and the poultry supply chain for my previous research projects.
