Sercan Yildiz

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) and in the Department of Statistics and Operations Research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My current research is concentrated on global optimization with special emphasis on the theory and practice of linear and conic integer programming. Throughout the 2016-2017 academic year, I am participating in SAMSI’s Program on Optimization. Please visit the program page for detailed information about our past and upcoming activities.

Prior to joining SAMSI, I completed my PhD in the Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization program at Carnegie Mellon University, under the guidance of Gerard Cornuejols. In the summer of 2015, I was a research intern in the Mathematical Sciences Department of the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center. Additional information about my research activities is available on my personal website.
