Ruadhaí Dervan

I'm a Research Fellow at Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge. I've previously spent time in École Polytechnique, Université libre de Bruxelles and Trinity College Dublin.

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

My research focuses on 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 theory and geometric analysis. My work is mostly motivated by the "Yau-Tian-Donaldson" conjecture, which links stability notions to the existence of canonical metrics.

I am teaching Part III Complex Manifolds in Lent Term 2020. I previously taught the same course in Lent Term 2019.
