Erol earned her bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from Koç University in Istanbul, Turkey. Prior to joining Wharton, she worked as Strategy and Business Development Consultant at a global medical technology company. Erol is interested in understanding the role of information technology (IT) in health care. More specifically, she analyzes both economic and societal effects of these technologies on insurers, care providers and patients, and how IT reshapes the provision of health care services and the connections between providers.
