Bora Keskin is an Associate Professor in the Operations Management area at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. Bora received his Ph.D. from the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University in 2012. Before joining the faculty at Duke University in 2015, he worked at McKinsey & Company as a consultant in banking and telecommunications industries, and at the University of Chicago as an Assistant Professor of Operations Management.

Bora's main research studies management problems that involve decision making under uncertainty. In particular he is interested in stochastic models and their application to revenue management, dynamic pricing, statistical learning, machine learning, and product differentiation. Bora has published papers in leading research journals such as Management Science, Operations Research, Manufacturing and Service Operations Management, and Mathematics of Operations Research. In 2019, Bora was awarded the Lanchester Prize for the development of a novel paradigm for the modeling and analysis of online dynamic optimization problems that are subject to temporal uncertainty.

Bora has taught Value Chain Innovation in Business Processes as well as Supply Chain Management for the Daytime and Executive MBA programs, and Revenue Management for the PhD program at the Fuqua School of Business. Outside Duke, he served as a Board Member for the INFORMS Revenue Management and Pricing (RM&P) Section from 2014-2016, and as a Cluster Chair for the RM&P and M&SOM-Service tracks at INFORMS Annual Meetings (organizing 319 talks in total).
