Alp Akcay is an Associate Professor in the Operations, Planning, Accounting and Control (OPAC) group at Eindhoven University of Technology. His research interests include statistical decision making under uncertainty, simulation design and analysis, and approximate dynamic programming with applications in manufacturing, maintenance, and supply chain management.
Most companies have a lot of data and it is critical for them to know how to use it. My work is on developing mathematical models to integrate real-world data with operational decision making.”
Alp Akcay received his PhD in Operations Management from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University (2013). The title of his PhD dissertation is “Statistical Estimation Problems in Inventory Control.” Dr. Akcay holds an MSc in Industrial Engineering from Sabanci University (2008) and a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from Boğaziçi University (2006). Prior to joining TU Eindhoven, dr. Akcay has worked as an assistant professor at Bilkent University (2013-2015).
