Refik Soyer is a Professor of
Management Science and a Research Associate at the Institute for Reliability
and Risk Analysis at The George Washington University. Dr. Soyer received
his DSc in Operations research from the George Washington University, MSc
in Operations Research from the University of Sussex, England and BA in
Economics from Bogazici University, Turkey. He joined the School of Business
and Public Management (SBPM) at George Washington University in 1987 and
has served as the director of Management Decision Making Program at SBPM.
He has served on the editorial board of the Journal of the American Statistical
Association and has published more than 70 papers on reliability modeling,
statistical aspects of reliability analysis and Bayesian statistics and
has coedited the Kluwer volume "Mathematical Reliability: An Expository
Perspective", with Thomas A. Mazzuchi, and Nozer D. Singpurwalla.
His research interests are in Bayesian inference, decision analysis, reliability
modeling and statistical aspects of reliability analysis, dynamic models
and time series analysis. He is an elected member of the International
Statistical Institute and a fellow of the Turkish Statistical Association.
