Renan Gross
Background
I am a PhD student of mathematics at the Weizmann Institute of Science, studying under the supervision of Ronen Eldan.
Before that I completed my masters in mathematics at the Weizmann Institute of Science (2017).
Before that I completed my undergraduate degree in mathematics and physics at the Technion (2015).
Before that I studied in the Israel Arts and Science Academy high school (2008).
I am interested in graph theory, probability, combinatorics, their union and their intersection.
The Boolean Zoo: This is a collaborative wiki whose purpose is to provide an extensive list of examples and counterexamples in Boolean function analysis. This is a (constant) workinprogress; contributions are welcome!
Here is my blog. It contains expositions, technical explorations, random musings, and sometimes, plain nonsense.

Summer School of Science
The Summer School of Science is an international summer science camp for high school students in Croatia. I have had the pleasure of leading a weeklong project there three times (1) (2) (3). This camp is a great opportunity for highschoolers to do science and meet friends abroad, and I wholeheartidly recommend it.
A note on the images:
 The upper left image shows a selfavoiding walk.. The image is taken from the wikimedia commons and was made by the user Rocchini.
 The upper right image shows the output of a bacteriatracking program I wrote in collaboration with Avraham Be'er. He studies the collective motion of bacteria, and you can read more about this work here.
 The lower left image shows a tiger deformed by a (mostly) analytic complex function. You can read more about this here.
 The lower right image shows a planar Brownian motion hitting a closed curve. The xposition of the motion has the uniform distribution on [1,1]. See here for more.
 The center image shows me, crudely pasted onto a background of critical hexagonal percolation. The thick bold curve denotes a crossing alongside open sites.

 My blog.

I occasionally write and perform spoken word poetry. Here is my most popular piece amongst mathematicians:
A complete playlist can be found here.
 I've played the piano since I was 11. Here is a video of the "Phrase Inversal" quartet in the Technion, of which I was a part, playing the first movement of Mozart's g minor quartet:
