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 duties during 20172018 Spring Term, since I will be in Haifa for a research visit to Prof. Tuvi Etzion at the Technion  Israel Institute of Technology, supported by TÜBİTAK 2214A Program.
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:
