Ruadhaí Dervan

I'm a Research Fellow at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge.

Previously I was a PhD student at the University of Cambridge, a visiting PhD student at the Université libre de Bruxelles and an undergaduate of Trinity College Dublin. I will spend the academic year 2017-2018 at École Polytechnique.

My first name is pronounced "Rui" (the "dh" is silent, it's Irish).

My research is in complex geometry and algebraic geometry. I am particularly interested in the existence of canonical metrics in complex geometry (e.g. Kähler-Einstein, extremal), notions of algebro-geometric stability (e.g. K-stability), and more generally moduli spaces and geometric analysis. My work is mostly motivated by the "Yau-Tian-Donaldson" conjecture, which links stability notions to the existence of canonical metrics.

Geometry Tea 2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2015-2016 and 2016-2017.

Papers and preprints:

I organised a conference in Rome in 2017: Moduli of K-stable varieties.

I also organised a conference in Cambridge in 2015: Postgraduate Conference in Complex Geometry.
