Ozan Candogan is an Assistant Professor in Operations Management at Chicago Booth. Prior to joining Booth, he was an Assistant Professor at the Fuqua School of Business where he was a member of the Decision Sciences area. Ozan received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Professor Candogan’s main research area is social and economic networks. Within the context of networks, he has focused on three different streams of work: (i) understanding how the data available through online social networks can be used to improve pricing/targeted advertising policies of sellers, (ii) characterizing how the structure of trading networks impact the surplus of traders, (iii) identifying how disruptions in a supply chain network propagate and asymmetrically impact manufacturers according to their network position. Recently, he also studied network models of ride-sharing platforms that shed light on the pricing/compensation policies these platforms should use to minimize the spatial mismatch of supply and demand. In addition, he has an active interest in understanding the role of partial information in networked systems, and its implications on control and optimization of these systems.

His research has appeared in journals such as Management Science, Operations Research, Mathematics of Operations Research, and Games and Economic Behavior.

Ozan Candogan was a finalist in the 2013 George Nicholson Student Paper Competition. He is also a recipient of the 2012 Microsoft Research Ph.D. Fellowship, and 2009 Siebel Scholarship. He teaches Operations Management, as well as a PhD course on Networks at Booth.
