Doug Stinson's Home Page

I retired in 2019. Formerly I was a University Professor in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. I am currently a Professor Emeritus and Adjunct Professor in the Cheriton School of Computer Science. I an also an Adjunct Research Professor in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at Carleton University.

The Stinson66 Conference (New Advances in Designs, Codes and Cryptography) was held in June 2022 at the Fields Institute in Toronto. From the conference website: "This conference will celebrate Doug Stinson’s 66th birthday and highlight his contributions to the fields of designs, codes, cryptography, and their connections. The goal is to explore recent developments, open problems and conjectures in combinatorial design theory along with applications to related areas including codes, cryptography, networks, and algorithms."

I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. I am also the past president of the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications, serving 2016-2022.

Cryptography Theory and Practice, Fourth Edition,
which was co-authored by Maura Paterson and me, was published by CRC Press in September 2018. My most recent book, Techniques for Designing and Analyzing Algorithms, was published by CRC Press in 2021.

Here is my Google Scholar page and here is an up-to-date CV (Sept. 22, 2022).

Finally, here is a link to my web page. produces "rankings" of academics based on "Microsoft Academic Graph H-Index". I have rankings in both mathematics and computer science. Among University of Waterloo faculty, has ranked me #1 in mathematics and #8 in computer science. My Canadian rankings are #15 and #46, respectively.
