Bio/Research

Burhaneddin Sandikçi studies decision-making problems under uncertainty with special interest in problems in medical decision making and health care operations. He is particularly interested in the mathematical modeling and analysis of such problems. He employs the methodologies of Markov decision processes (MDPs), partially observed MDPs, stochastic programming, and simulation in his research. His research is widely motivated by practical considerations and he heavily uses real data in calibrating and solving his models. His most recent work include modeling and analyzing the accept/reject problem faced by liver transplant patients. Using large databases and sophisticated mathematical models, this work demonstrates the impact of using the partially observable waiting list information (as available in the current practice) on patient’s life expectancies. He has given many invited talks at various institutes including Stanford University, Northwestern University, University of Michigan, and University of Southern California and at several international conferences.
