Research Overview

Kaave Hosseini joined URCS in Fall 2021. Previously, he was a postdoctoral associate in the department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. He received his PhD at the University of California, San Diego. His research is in theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics. Conceptually speaking, some of his work has to do with the structure vs. randomness dichotomy and applications of this phenomenon in various areas such as computational complexity, algorithms, communication complexity, and additive combinatorics. Moreover, he has worked on explicit constructions of pseudorandom objects such as pseudorandom generators and extractors, which are objects with a wide range of applications in complexity theory and cryptography.
