Profile

Ilker Birbil is an internationally well recognised expert in the field of optimisation and decision making. Over the last few years, he has been expanding his research and teaching into the area of data science. Within several disciplines including operations research there is an increasing attention for data science and machine learning techniques. One stream of his research is developing in this area. In particular, he is looking at large scale optimisation problems that are fundamental to machine learning problems. Ilker Birbil will immediately strengthen data science research and teaching at Erasmus School of Economics, e.g. in the econometrics MSc programme (specialisation Business Analytics and Quantitative Marketing) and the…

Ilker Birbil received his PhD degree from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, USA. He then worked for two years as a postdoctoral research fellow of the Erasmus Research Institute of Management in Rotterdam. Until recently he held a full professor position with Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey, in the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences.
