I joined the Management Information Systems Department of Fox School of Business at Temple University in July 2017 as an Assistant Professor. I moved here from University of Baltimore after working there from 2014 to 2017. I obtained my PhD in Management Science from Naveen Jindal School of Management, University of Texas at Dallas in 2014. I also hold MS and BS degrees in Industrial Engineering from University of Florida and Bilkent University respectively.
My research interests lie primarily in two areas. The first involves Business Analytics with a focus on healthcare analytics. The second involves the business value of information technologies. Both areas investigate the managerial implications of information technology implementation decisions at healthcare or manufacturing organizations and contain a major analytics or empirical component. I am currently working on a healthcare project that involves analysis of over 500K patient admission records from 68 hospitals in the North Texas region and another project on the state of Maryland’s entire inpatient and outpatient admission claims’ records for the fiscal years of 2013 – 2016 (~5.4 million records).
In terms of teaching interests, I have taught courses on Data Science, Management Information Systems, Analytical Techniques, and Predictive Analytics subjects.
I have also worked in various voluntary organizations such as UNICEF and currently I’m trying to become an advocate for animals at SPCA. I will always be present in charity and voluntary organizations for a better lively world.
