Biography

Dr. Irem Ozkarahan has taught at business schools and in industrial engineering as well as computer science/engineering departments at various universities after receiving her PhD degree in industrial and management systems engineering at Arizona State University in 1987. She has earned the full professor title at various universities since 1998. The list of professional activities and courses she has been teaching for more than thirty years at various universities can be found on her website.                  

One of the significant moments of her professional life has been serving as a PhD dissertation adviser for eight talented PhD students while she was at Dokuz Eylul University in the department of industrial engineering in Izmir, Turkey. They had created several publications based on their joint research that they had developed together. Dr. Ozkarahan also served as master’s thesis adviser for many other graduate students. She especially enjoys the connection that she has created with her PhD and master’s thesis students. Even after several years, she still corresponds with them, and they have became lifelong friends as well as colleagues.

On the administrative side, she has worked as the department chair of computer engineering as well as vice president of Dokuz Eylul University catering to over 45,000 students in Izmir, Turkey. Here in the United States, she has also worked as department chair of computer science for more than six years at the Montgomery campus of Troy University in Alabama. She retired from Troy University after having served as a tenured full professor for 10 years and then subsequently moved to New York to be near her family.

She joined Fordham university as clinical professor in the operations management area to teach the courses that she enjoys.
