John William Lott (born January 12, 1959)[1] is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley. He is working on Ricci flow.

He and Bruce Kleiner of Yale University make up one of three teams formed for the purpose of verifying Grigori Perelman's proof of the Poincaré conjecture. The other two teams comprised Zhu Xiping and Cao Huaidong, and Gang Tian and John Morgan. They posted a paper on the arXiv in May 2006 that filled in the details of Perelman's proof of the geometrization conjecture.[2]
