algebraic geometry

Miles Reid works in algebraic geometry. During the 1980s he introduced the
canonical and terminal singularities that revolutionized the minimal model
program (Mori theory) and the birational classification of 3-folds and
higher dimensional varieties. He pioneered the higher dimensional McKay
correspondence, and is an expert in the construction of algebraic varieties
using the commutative algebra of graded rings.
