Operations research

“My main research area is efficiency and productivity analysis of decision-making units using data envelopment analysis (DEA). DEA can be considered as one of the recent success stories in management science and it has been successfully applied in many organizations.

As a data-oriented business analytics tool, DEA identifies best practices that are often hidden and recommends directions for managers that can dramatically improve efficiency across different business firms. One of my current research directions is environmental efficiency. Specifically, developing DEA and inverse DEA models to minimize undesirable outputs, the production of substances that are harmful to the environment.”
