Emre Nadar is an assistant professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering at Bilkent University. He received his B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering from Bilkent University, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Operations Management from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University.
In his research, Dr. Nadar focuses on several supply chain management problems that involve complex dynamics or high degrees of uncertainty or both: managing inventories in supply chains with multiple products and components under nonstationary demand and partial information, managing new-product diffusion in closed-loop supply chains, and managing renewable resources in energy supply chains. He models such problems as Markov decision processes and establishes non-trivial structural results that often give rise to new optimal policies and smarter computational methods. He also studies problems at the interface of supply chains and sustainability that involve complex dynamics in the presence of competition.
Dr. Nadar is the recipient of the first place award in the POMS College of Supply Chain Management 2012 Student Paper Competition. He is also the recipient of the finalist awards in the INFORMS George Nicholson 2012 Student Paper Competition and the INFORMS MSOM Society 2012 Student Paper Competition. His work has appeared in Operations Research, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, Production and Operations Management, Omega: The International Journal of Management Science, and European Journal of Operational Research.
Dr. Nadar serves as a peer-reviewer in many academic journals, including Operations Research, Management Science, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, Production and Operations Management, INFORMS Journal on Computing, Omega: The International Journal of Management Science, European Journal of Operational Research, Naval Research Logistics, and Queueing Systems.
