A picture of me

Gavin Ball

I am a fifth year PhD student in mathematics at Duke University, working under the supervision of Robert Bryant.

I am a graduate student participant in the Simons Collaboration on Special Holonomy in Geometry, Analysis, and Physics.

My CV is available here (updated 7th November 2018).

I am on the job market this year, and you can find my research statement here.
