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

During 20162017 Spring Term I am assisting for the following courses.
 MATH 153 Calculus for Mathematics Students I: All announcements will be made and documents will be shared by emails, the students enrolled in this course are supposed to check their metumail accounts regularly. The syllabus is available also on the website of the professor.
 MATH 154 Calculus for Mathematics Students II: All announcements and document sharings will be on the METUCLASS system and the official website of the course.
Research work

In general, I am working 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:
