Aydin is a transfer pricing economist. Since 1998, he had worked with more than 200 companies with transfer pricing planning, ranging from global and domestic intellectual property development, cost sharing, and licensing strategies; supply chain and business model changes. His primary industry focus areas are life sciences and aerospace/defense, as well as high-technology manufacturing, and software industries.

Outside of his professional practice, Aydin enjoys working on his art projects, which are mostly abstract paintings with 3-D found objects, and writing. His business novel about transfer pricing recently came out from Kluwer Law:  Transfer Pricing in Action. For a preview of Aydin’s works of art, please visit Aydin’s Art.
