In this presentation, first I would like to give brief information about my education background, industrial and academic experiences. After I describe my teaching and research background briefly, I will focus on one part of my PhD study which is about dynamic location and capacity planning on stochastic healthcare networks. In this study we deal with the problem of rejections in a stochastic pure loss hierarchical healthcare service network (specifically perinatal networks) and propose a multi-period, multi-facility, multi-service nonlinear optimization model for periodic location and capacity decisions in order to ensure a minimum desired customer acceptance rate in each service. I will present different linearization approaches that are developed to convert nonlinear model. Finally I conclude with my perspective on future work.
