Richard Francis Gombrich (/ˈɡɒmbrɪtʃ/; born 17 July 1937) is a British Indologist and scholar of Sanskrit, Pāli, and Buddhist studies. He was the Boden Professor of Sanskrit at the University of Oxford from 1976 to 2004. He is currently Founder-President of the Oxford Centre for Buddhist Studies.

Gombrich is the son of Austrian-born art historian E. H. Gombrich, but pronounces his surname with an English, not a German, ch. His translation with Margaret Cone of the Vessantara Jātaka was reissued by the Pali Text Society in 2011.—
