About Me

I am an assistant professor of reliability, maintenance and service logistics at University of Twente. I received my Ph.D. from Middle East Technical University, Turkey, in 2010. I worked at Çankaya University, Turkish Military Academy, and Eindhoven University of Technology. I worked also as a researcher in research projects on proactive service logistics for capital goods (ProSeLo, ProSeLoNext) and proactive maintenance planning (MANTIS). My research interests include spare parts management, maintenance and service logistics.
