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.
