Today I am going to look at the metric effects (using Hamming distance) of the hashing functions (MD5 and SHA1) on bit vectors.

Today I am going to look at a topology problem. I'll show that every weakly contractive self-map on a compact metric space has a fixed point.
A description of my research
I do homological and homotopical algebra in the context of noncommutative geometry. You can find a detailed exposition of my past research, my present and future research interests in my research statement. Specifically I am interested in, Hopf equivariant cohomology theories, various flavors of Hochschild (co)homology, cyclic (co)homology and K-Theory. I am also intrested in abstract homotopical algebra, operads, PROPs and their algebras. For the visually inclined, I have a map of my slanted view of the noncommutative geometry landscape.
Applied Statistics and History
As an ongoing project with Prof. Boğaç Ergene at University of Vermont, we investigate social mobility patterns in 18th Century Ottoman Empire. While he provided the historical context and the analysis of the results we obtained, I did the necessary data processing and performed the statistical analyses needed for the particular data set Prof. Ergene painstakingly generated from historical sources and archives. We wrote three papers together so far, with more to come in the future.
