Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences
Sabancı University, Istanbul, Turkey
I studied Mathematics at Ghent University (Belgium), and obtained my Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands) in 2001 under the supervision of Aart Blokhuis and Andries Brouwer. I worked as a postdoc at the University of Naples (Marie Curie Fellowship), at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona (EU-project COMBSTRU), Eindhoven University of Technology (Veni grant (NWO)), Ghent University (FWO fellowship), and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). In 2012, I obtained my Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale for full professor (settore 01/A1, Algebra/Geomety) from the Italian Ministero dell'Istruzione dell'Università e della Ricerca, and was a faculty member at the University of Padua from 2011-2017. In 2017 I joined the Math group of the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences at Sabancı University.
Member of the editorial board of Designs, Codes and Cryptography and Finite Fields and Their Applications.
One of the authors of the FinInG package for computation in Finite Incidence Geometry.
I am responsible for the Sabancı Algebra Seminar and the
Sabancı Math Colloquium.
One of the organisers of the Irsee conferences on Finite Geometries.
