Ofer Gabber (עופר גאבר; born May 16, 1958) is an Israeli mathematician working in algebraic geometry.


In 1978 Gabber received a Ph.D. (Some theorems on Azumaya algebras) under the supervision of Barry Mazur from Harvard University. He was then in 1984 at the IHES in Bures-sur-Yvette in Paris, where he was a leading figure of the tradition of algebraic geometry in the sense of Alexander Grothendieck's, who had worked in the 1960s at the IHES. In 1982, he was involved in Joseph Bernstein, Deligne and Alexander Beilinson's Faisceaux pervers.[clarification needed] He also studied the étale cohomology of schemes. In 1981 he received the Erdős Prize.
