Enver Yücesan is a Professor of Technology and Operations Management at INSEAD.

His research is at the interface of simulation, optimization, and statistics. More specifically, he focuses on complementing the modelling power of computer simulation with efficient analysis methodologies to study the dynamic behaviour of complex systems such as supply chains and social networks, which, in turn, enables robust design and effective management of these ecosystems. More recently, he has been focusing on agricultural supply chains to address key challenges such as identification of robust parent seeds, farmer contracting, small holder management, and production and inventory planning under increasing volatility driven by population dynamics and climate change.

Over the past three decades, he has also been actively serving the simulation community at large in various editorial and administrative positions; in recognition of his contributions, the INFORMS Simulation Society recently presented Enver with its Distinguished Service Award. He has also been elected as an INFORMS Fellow in recognition of his significant contributions to the field of Operations Research and Management Science. He is currently serving as one of the Department Editors in the Supply Chain & Logistics focused issue of IISE Transactions.

He is an industrial engineer with a PhD in Operations Research from Cornell University.

Enver Yücesan is the Academic Director of the Supply Chain Management programme.
