Dr. Sherzod Turaev has a Ph.D in Theoretical Computer Science (Formal Languages and Automata) from University Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain (2010) and Ph.D in Mathematics (Discrete Mathematics) from the National University of Uzbekistan (2001). He started his academic and research career at the National University of Uzbekistan as a senior lecturer in the Department of Computational Linguistics in September 2000. He was a researcher at GRLMC, University Rovira i Virgili from 2007 to 2009, a visiting researcher at the Faculty of Informatics, Otto-Von-Guericke University Magdeburg in 2008 a ... show more nd a postdoctoral researcher at Faculty of Computer Science and Information Systems, University Putra Malaysia from October 2009 to August 2012. He joined Kulliyyah of Information and Communication Technology, International Islamic University Malaysia in September 2012. Dr. Sherzod Turaev has considerable experience teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students in several areas, including Discrete Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, Mathematical Logic, Combinatorics, Graph Theory, Computation Theory, Formal Languages and Automata Theory, Algorithm Analysis and Design at National University of Uzbekistan and International Islamic University Malaysia. His research is devoted to the study of symmetric and asymmetric measures for convex polytopes, which are one of the fundamental objects of Mathematics, using its combinatorial features and investigate the related mathematical properties. The obtained results help to classify polytopes precisely, and understand the nature of asymmetric polytopes. He is currently working on computational problems and descriptional complexity problems of regulated rewriting systems, the construction of theoretical models for universal programmable DNA-based computers using splicing and sticker systems over algebraic structures, the development of formal methods for software quality models and the design of cryptographic systems based on matrices, automata and grammars. Dr. Sherzod Turaev has more than 150 published papers in refereed journals, book chapters and conferences including Information Fusion, Open Mathematics, Theoretical Computer Science, Acta Cybernetica, Journal of Universal Computer Science and Lecture Notes in Computer Science, AIP, etc.
