Research

Research Area: Finite Fields and Applications, Discrete Mathematics, Algebra and Number Theory

Research Interests: The Theory of Finite Fields and Applications in Coding Theory, Communications, and Cryptography; Enumerative and Additive Combinatorics; Additive and Computational Number Theory; Semigroups and Semigroup Algebras; Universal Algebra. In particular,

·  Polynomials/functions over finite fields, for exmaple, irreducible polynomials, permutation polynomials, planar functions, Boolean functions, etc.

·  Sequences over finite fields, for example, LFSR and NLFSR sequences, stream ciphers, pseudoramdom generators, linear complexity, correlations, etc.

·  Applications of finite fields in Coding Theory and Cryptography; for example, nonlinearity of functions over finite fields, S-boxes, etc.

·  Combinatorial designs, for example, Latin squares, Costas arrays, Tuscan arrays, orthogonal arrays, etc.

·  subset sum and multisubet sum problems

·  arithmetic properties of group rings, semigroup rings, and semigroups.

·  special classes of semigroups and algebras.

Editorial Work:

·  Editorial board member of the journal Finite Fields and their Applications, Elsevier.

·  Editorial board member of the journal Cryptography, MDPI.
