Melike is a PhD student in Industrial Engineering. In her MS thesis, she developed a system dynamics model for insulin resistance and type II diabetes in the context of obesity. During her graduate studies, she was part of a project team that built a simulation model for operating room scheduling and staff management. In addition, she was involved in a research on analyzing the factors affecting patients' decisions to receive a second opinion. As a new member of HSyE, she is enthusiastic to work on the research team. She recently joined two projects on constructing a dynamic simulation model for antibiotics stewardship and improving emergency department after-hours access. Her hobbies include playing volleyball and tennis, cycling, swimming, playing guitar, cooking and chess.
