Funding & Opportunities

At Sabanci University, graduate students do not pay any tuition fee. Currently, all graduate students in our program receive a financial aid. Some of these students are supported by the university as research assistants. The others are supported through research projects. The scholarships include monthly stipend and tuition waiver. All our students are also eligible for the graduate student housing in the campus. Most students share a room with another graduate student. There are also a few single-occupancy rooms.

Every student in our program is expected to assist undergraduate courses. Although it very much depends on the course, in general, a graduate student spends, on average, 10 to 15 hours a week for teaching. This includes problem solving sessions (2 hours), preparation for the recitation (3-4 hours), office hours (2-3 hours), grading (2-3 hours), responding to messages (1-3 hours).

We encourage our students to attend national and international conferences. The students are usually supported by the university. In addition, the faculty members have their own research budgets to support their students. There are also other funding opportunities through The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey and European Research Council.

While pursuing their PhD degree, our doctoral students have a chance to visit another institution for one semester. They work with other scientists and extend their research network. These visits are also supported partly by the university and partly by The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey and European Research Council. There could also be funding opportunities through the hosting institution.

In the past, our students visited the these institutions for their pre-doctoral study.

    Modeling and 3D bioprinting of hybrid live cell and biomaterial structures for vascular tissue engineering

    Abstract: The main aim of this project is to 3D bioprint live cell aggregates with biomaterials support structures in vascular tissue engineering. In addition, 3D bioprinting tool path planning and parameters are optimized based on the cell proliferation, morphology, autophagy and cell stress analyses. With this proposed work, the following novel methods will be developed: i) new computer aided algorithms will be developed to model and 3D print multi-cellular aggregates and their support structures with biomaterials (hydrogels), ii) a novel multi-nozzle 3D bioprinter will be developed to fabricate the hybrid live cell support structures directly from the computer-aided design (CAD) models, iii) analyzing the biofabricated structures for cell aggregate fusion, cell morphology, autophagy and cell stresses, iv) optimizing 3D bioprinting topology (path planning) and bioprinting parameters. These novel ideas will advance the science and research in computer-aided tissue engineering.

    Computational model-informed strategies for the biomanufacturing of 3D patterned constructs for the treatment of large, non-healing bone defects

    In this novel collaborative research project, computational model-informed strategies to design 3D patterned constructs and subsequent biomanufacturing of the optimized constructs are proposed for the treatment of large, non-healing bone defects. We hypothesize that TE constructs characterized by controlled spatial patterns of cells, growth factors and matrix densities will enhance the healing of large bone defects. First, a multi-scale computational model of bone regeneration, developed at KU Leuven will be used to design 3D patterned constructs that should enhance the healing of large, non-healing bone defects. The modeled and optimized 3D patterned constructs will then be biomanufactured using fabrication techniques developed at Sabanci University.

    Additive Manufacturing of Multifunctional Nano-composite Structures

    In this project, our aim is to develop 3D multi-functional structures made out of spatially changing nano-composites using 3D printing technologies by optimizing the structures design, developing path planning algorithms and 3D printing of these structures directly from their optimum designs. Therefore, we will i) develop computer-aided algorithms to model multi-functional structures from base polymer and its nano-composites, ii) develop tool-path planning algorithms for 3D printing of the designs, iii) develop new 3D printing technologies for manufacturing of these multifunctional structures.

    3D Coaxial Elecrohydrodynamic Printing of Multifunctional Scaffolds for Wound Healing and Skin Regeneration

    The objective is this research plan is to develop a novel multifunctional “active” scaffolds with controlled micro-architecture and material composition using the proposed three-dimensional (3D) electrohydrodynamic coaxial bioprinting device. Computational algorithms will be developed to design such active scaffolds based on the proposed electrohydrodynamic process parameters. The proposed active scaffold with the required mechanical and biological properties will be fabricated by optimizing the composition of the composite coaxial biomaterials. Novel computer aided algorithms will be developed to model 3D scaffolds based on wound geometry and by mimicking wound healing process. The proposed computational algorithms will then be used to calculate optimum 3D bioprinting topologies. The developed multifunctional scaffolds will be tested for their biocompatibility and biodegradation using in-vitro cytotoxicity and animal studies. The results from these studies will be used to further optimize the process and biomaterial parameters.

  • Barış Balcıoğlu: Stochastic Modeling, Queueing Systems, Discrete-Event Simulation

    Applications

    Analysis of Production and Inventory Systems, Call Centers

    Projects

    Currently, I am interested in implementing dynamic pricing schemes in production/inventory systems to combat the degrading effects of production time variability. Increasing or decreasing the price of a product considering workload at the production facility may help the company reap more profit than that it would obtain when a static pricing scheme is followed. In customer contact centers, I would like to introduce the call-back option for customers that wait on the line. If customers accept this option, within a given period of time, call centers call the customer back. This may increase the customer satisfaction, decrease the loss of customers who become inpatient while waiting on the line, can decrease the stress on agents.

Moreover, the problem can be modeled as a special case of network design problems. Therefore, the problem has both practical and theoretical importance.

    Projects

    The interest in environmental issues has grown in the last few decades. Recently, various researchers have studied green lot sizing problems with different carbon emission constraints. This problem may be further studied by introducing new carbon emission constraints, and different formulations (and solution techniques) may be developed to solve this problem.

    In a very broad sense, my research interests and expertise are in modeling and solving large-scale optimization problems. So far, I have focused on developing efficient optimization algorithms for several vehicle routing and scheduling problems encountered in practice. However, these algorithms are based on established optimization techniques such as the use of cutting planes, decomposition, or dynamic programming, which can be applied to solve optimization problems in a variety of domains other than vehicle routing and scheduling, or even other than the broader area of transportation and logistics.

    Projects

    Determinants of Firm Level Competitiveness:

    "What are the internal and external drivers that influence the competitiveness of companies?" is the major research question that will be investigated under this title. Empirical survey based research will also allow to evaluate the relative significance of these determinants and as a result a decision support tool will be developed that might be helpful for strategic level decision makers.

    Validation of Multi Criteria Decision Making Techniques

    Many techniques are developed as a tool for multi Criteria decision making problems with the intention of assisting the human decision making process. However, these techniques do not capture the behavioral biases of humans but rather their theoretical framework assumes a rational thinking. This research will try to evaluate the performance of these techniques in real life as a tool for assisting so-called irrational decision makers, i.e., humans.

    Feature Weighting

    Not only lack or relevant features, but also abundance of irrelevant features in data directly influences the performance of the data mining process because those irrelevant or relative less important features curtain the relations in data. Therefore feature subset selection and/or feature weighting is the most significant step of data mining phase. In this project methodological improvements are considered for this problem.

    Concurrency, parallelism, feasibility of preemption and task migration are just some of the many aspects of the resource allocation and scheduling problems faced by cloud companies in their data center operations. One major goal of this project is to identify novel, interesting, and relevant problems confronting a typical data center which needs to ensure a certain customer service level while also minimizing the operational costs and the energy footprint. These problems are then to be formulated and solved via mathematical programming techniques, including stochastic programming.

    Modeling Generation Company Interactions in Power Markets

    Design of power markets has become an important practice and research area following recent deregulation and privatization waves. Our findings in this research stream can help power companies develop more effective bidding strategies. In addition, the findings can help governments design more efficient power markets, leading to lower cost electricity generation and increase in public welfare. Allowing what-if scenario analyses, such simulation models can be used as a "wind tunnels" to test the effects of policy proposals on market players.

  • Nilay Noyan: Decision making under uncertainty, Large-scale optimization, Stochastic programming, Risk modeling, Statistical inference methods.

    Applications

    Stochastic Optimization Applications; in particular, humanitarian logistics, sustainable urban transportation, airline revenue management, homeland security

    Projects

    Chance-Constrained Stochastic Programming:

    For many decision making problems, it is crucial to consider the inherent uncertainty and develop risk-averse optimization models. For example, in the chaotic post-disaster environment, there is significant uncertainty in factors affecting the structure of a relief distribution network. It is essential to develop decision making models incorporating the inherent uncertainty in an effective way for ensuring a successful disaster response.

    As part of our ongoing work, we intend to introduce a new class of chance-constrained two-stage stochastic programs, which can be applied to relief network design, and develop decomposition-based solution algorithms.

    Robust Risk-Averse Stochastic Programming Models For Multicriteria Decision Making Problems, TUBITAK 1001 Project (115M560):

    For many decision making problems under uncertainty, it is essential to take into account decision makers' risk preferences and specify the preferences based on multiple stochastic performance measures/criteria. Such decision making problems arise in a wide range of areas, including humanitarian logistics, homeland security budget allocation, and financial management. In the scope of this project, we intend to study various risk-averse optimization models for multicriteria decision making problems and develop associated effective solution methods. In such problems, finding best decisions requires specifying preference relations among vector-valued random variables, where each dimension of a vector corresponds to a decision criterion. In this respect, we consider the multivariate preference relations primarily based on the risk measure called ``conditional value-at-risk - (CVaR)''; such relations provide a higher flexibility to express decision makers' risk preferences and allow us to represent a wider range of views.

  • Sinan Yıldırım: Bayesian Statistics, Monte Carlo Methods, Parameter Estimation, Time Series Models, Data Privacy, Scalable Algorithms

    Applications

    Fault localization in failed systems with the minimum expected total cost: When a complicated system fails, it is important to find the reason of failure as cheaply (quick) as possible. One needs to find efficient strategies to do this and different assumptions regarding the system function, the tests, feasibility, objective function lead to different research problems.

Social Life

Sabancı University campus is at the outskirts of Istanbul. The campus has several restaurants and cafes. The Performing Arts Center hosts professional shows and artists regularly. There are also many very active student clubs. In the campus there are various sports facilities that are easily accessible for the students. The students travel between the campus and the city center with shuttles or public transportation.

In our graduate program, we try to organize outings now and then. Here are a couple pictures from our social life in our program.
