Beste Basciftci

Beste Basciftci is currently a fourth year Ph.D. student in operations research at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology. She received her bachelor's degrees in industrial engineering and computer engineering from Boğaziçi University with high honors. She also holds an M.S. degree in industrial engineering from Boğaziçi University.

Beste is broadly interested in data-driven decision making problems under uncertainty. Methodologically, her research focuses on developing mixed-integer, stochastic programming and robust optimization approaches to large-scale operations research related problems, specifically for applications in energy, supply chains, production systems, and health care operations. Her research also involves developing and integrating analytics and machine learning approaches to optimization framework.
