Research

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

Research Interests: finite fields and applications in cryptography and coding theory; combinatorics; 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, FSR sequences, generalized Lucas sequences, 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.

·  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.
