Honors & Awards


Ozge Surer is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Systems and Analytics at Miami University. Prior to this appointment, she was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Northwestern-Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering. She obtained her Ph.D. degree in the Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences Department at Northwestern University. She has a bachelor's degree from Istanbul Technical University and a master of science degree from Bogazici University in the same field. Her primary research interests lie at the intersection of statistics and machine learning to analyze and develop tools for learning from large data sets. Her doctoral work focuses on designing interpretable predictive models to discover the group structure from data, and their interdisciplinary applications. Currently, she is developing tools and techniques relying on Bayesian statistical learning to predict the future behavior of physical systems with well-quantified uncertainties.
