About Me



Ahoy there! My name is Stefan Grosser, and I am a Master's student in Mathematics at McGill studying under Hamed Hatami and Sergey Norin. My research interests are in extremal combinatorics, complexity theory, and (very broadly) algebra and algebraic combinatorics.

I had the absolute privilege of working with Alejandro Morales during my final year at UMass Amherst.

If I'm not doing math or programming, you'll find me swing dancing or playing my oud.

Derandomization of BPP Using Hitting Set Generators

In 1999, Goldreich, Vadhan, and Wigderson wrote a beautiful and simple paper that the derandomization of RP through hitting set generators a...
