I am a Ph.D. student and a teaching & research assistant at Middle East Technical University. Here is my CV for more detail.
Teaching announcements

I have no teaching duty during the 20172018 academical year.
Research work

In general, I work on problems covered in algebraic coding theory and cryptography.
In particular, I have studies on rank metric codes, subspace codes and finite chain rings.
Here are some of my recent studies:
