Out of curiosity, does Nagarjuna use the concepts of conventional and ultimate truth in his works?

"People often get too quick to say 'there's no self. There's no self...no self...no self.' There is self, there is focal point, its not yours. That's what not self is."

Ninoslav Ñāṇamoli
Senses and the Thought-1, 42:53

"Those who create constructs about the Buddha,
Who is beyond construction and without exhaustion,
Are thereby damaged by their constructs;
They fail to see the Thus-Gone.

That which is the nature of the Thus-Gone
Is also the nature of this world.
There is no nature of the Thus-Gone.
There is no nature of the world."

Nagarjuna
MMK XXII.15-16

The late Theravada scholar Kalupahana argued in his many works, including his translation of Mūlamadhyamakakārikā, that Nagarjuna's ideas were implicit or explicit in early Buddhism and in Theravada. They are shared ideas so there is no contradiction possible.
