Murat Yildirim

Biography

Dr. Murat Yildirim is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Wayne State University. Prior to joining Wayne State, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology (2016-2018). Dr. Yildirim's research interest lies in advancing the integration of mathematical programming and data analytics in various application domains, with a special emphasis on energy and mobility applications. Specifically, he focuses on the modeling and the computational challenges arising from the integration of real-time inferences generated by advanced data analytics into large-scale mixed integer programs (MIPs) used for optimizing and controlling networked systems.
