is professor of Operations Management at the School of Management at University of Texas at Dallas. Metin's research focuses on making good decisions in the presence of uncertainty. He employs mathematical models to formulate problems arising in real-life contexts and then uses optimization methods or heuristics to come up with decisions. He has investigated problems from various contexts: capacity, inventory management, transshipments, contracts, forecasting and cargo overbooking. All these contexts constitute the pieces of a greater effort to better match the production/service capacity and the customer demand. This vital match determines the profitability and hence the success of an organization. Metin also works on industry-specific (semiconductor, heating/cooling equipment, cargo airlines and printed materials) projects. He is the associate editor for MSOM journal and senior editor for the POM journal, and served/serving on the editorial board of other journals.
