Graham Robert Everest (14 December 1957 in Southwick, West Sussex – 30 July 2010) was a British mathematician.

Everest came from a working-class family and studied at Bedford College (now Royal Holloway College) of the University of London: he took a Ph.D. in 1983 under the supervision of Colin J. Bushnell of King's College London (The distribution of normal integral generators in tame extensions of Q.)[1] He joined the faculty of the University of East Anglia in 1983 as a lecturer and spent his academic career there.

His research fields were the interaction of dynamical systems and number theory and recursive equations in number theory.

In 1983 he became a member of the London Mathematical Society. In 2012 he was awarded the Lester Randolph Ford Award jointly with Thomas Ward for their work in diophantine equations.[2]

He was ordained a priest in the Church of England in 2006. He died of prostate cancer on 30 July 2010, leaving behind his wife and three children.
