Osman Ozaltin joined NC State in August 2013 as a Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program cluster hire in Precision Medicine. He is an assistant professor in the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering and a part of the Healthcare Systems Engineering group. His research focuses on theoretical, computational and applied aspects of mathematical programming, centering on multilevel stochastic optimization problems arising in public health policy making, personalized medical decision making and healthcare delivery. He is also interested in developing efficient algorithms for large-scale combinatorial problems in bioinformatics. His methods include integer programming, combinatorial optimization, stochastic programming, bi-level programming, quadratic programming and decomposition algorithms for large scale mathematical programs.

Ozaltin received a bachelor of science in industrial engineering from Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey. He earned his master of science and Ph.D. in industrial engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. Previously, Ozaltin was an assistant professor of management sciences at the University of Waterloo, Canada. His publications appeared in top academic journals including Operations Research and Mathematical Programming. He received the distinguished Institute of Industrial Engineers Best Dissertation Award in 2013 for his work to optimize the annual influenza vaccine design.
