STOR Colloquium: Serhan Ziya, UNC-Chapel Hill
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Service operations with a focus in healthcare: a partial and
subjective overview of related research in STOR
This talk will provide an overview of some of the research projects in which the speaker is either currently an active participant or hopes to help initiate in the near future. The main goal is to create awareness and generate interest in the area of service operations particularly as it relates to healthcare, and highlight opportunities for potential collaborations with different research groups within or outside STOR. The first half of the talk will be devoted to a relatively detailed presentation of an interdisciplinary research project on improving patient flow in emergency departments while the second half will consist of quick exposition of several other projects, which have features that are likely be of interest to researchers with various methodological backgrounds.
Collaborators on the patient flow project are Nilay Tanik Argon, Tommy Bohrmann, Wanyi Chen, Benjamin Linthicum, Kenny Lopiano, Abhi Mehrotra, and Debbie Travers. Collaborators on other projects will be introduced during the talk.
