I am a mathematician, specializing on algebraic and enumerative combinatorics.

 I am currently pursuing my research in Galatasaray University, funded by Tübitak 1001 and 2218 grants.


 I completed my PhD in University of Southern California, working on algebraic combinatiorics, under the direction of Prof. Sami Assaf. I worked with symmetric and quasisymmetric functions and Young tableaux, and focusing on type B and C analogues. Afterwards, that I was a postdoctoral fellow in Sabancı University working with Prof. Kağan Kurşungöz on partition identities and  a visiting researcher in Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm working with Prof. Svante Linusson on cyclic sieving where I got the chance to participate in the Algebraic and Enumerative Combinatorics in the amazing Mittag-Leffler Institute

More recently, I have been working with the wonderfully talented Mohan Ravichandran in Boğaziçi University which was unfortunately cut short- Check Endangered Scholars for details. Then I worked for a while in the Boğaziçi University Computer Engineering for the Molecular Signal Processing in the Circulatory System project of Birkan Yılmaz.


My research interests include: Posets and lattices, tableaux combinatorics, permutations statistics, Markov numbers, cluster algebras, crystal bases, dynamical algebraic combinatorics and combinatorial games.


 I math problems, puzzles and conjectures. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions at: ezgikantarcioguz(at)gmail.com
