Ruadhaí Dervan

I'm a fourth year PhD student at the University of Cambridge. My supervisor is Julius Ross. I was previously an undergraduate of Trinity College, Dublin. I'm a member of its sister college in Cambridge, St. John's.

From February to August 2016 I will be a Fondation Wiener - Anspach scholar at the Université libre de Bruxelles, visiting Joel Fine's group.

Starting in October 2016, I will be a Research Fellow at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge.

My first name is pronounced "Rui" (it's Irish).

I am a complex geometer. I'm interested in the existence of certain canonical Kähler metrics (e.g. Kähler-Einstein and constant scalar curvature) and notions of algebro-geometric stability (e.g. K-stability). The link between the two is the so-called "Yau-Tian-Donaldson" conjecture, which motivates my work.
