WELCOME

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 2017-2018 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 2214-A 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:
  • Preprints:
    • K. Otal, F. Özbudak and W. Willems, "Self-duality of generalized twisted Gabidulin codes" (submitted, available upon request).
    • K. Otal and F. Özbudak, "Some new non-additive maximum rank distance codes" (submitted, available upon request).
    • E. Martínez-Moro, K. Otal and F. Özbudak, "Additive cyclic codes over finite commutative chain rings", (2017). arxiv:1701.06672
  • Publications:
    • K. Otal and F. Özbudak, "Constructions of cyclic subspace codes and maximum rank distance codes", In M. Greferath, M. Pavcevic, N. Silberstein, and A. Vazquez-Castro (Eds.), Network Coding and Subspace Designs, Springer (to appear)
