Miles Reid (born 30 January 1948, Hoddesdon, England) is a mathematician who works in algebraic geometry.

He studied mathematics at Cambridge University, obtaining his Ph.D. in 1973 under the supervision of Peter Swinnerton-Dyer and Pierre Deligne.[1] He was a research fellow of Christ's College, Cambridge from 1973 to 1978. He became a lecturer at the University of Warwick in 1978 and was appointed professor there in 1992. He has written two well known books: Undergraduate Algebraic Geometry and Undergraduate Commutative Algebra. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2002. He speaks Japanese and has given a lecture in Japanese.

Reid was awarded the Senior Berwick Prize in 2006 for his paper with Alessio Corti and Alexander Puklihkov, “Fano 3-fold hypersurfaces”, which made a big advance in the study of 3-dimensional algebraic varieties.[2]
