It is our pleasure to share with you the exciting news that Dr. Maryam Mizakhani, one of Sharif University of Technology graduates, has won the 2014 prestigious award of “Fields Medal.” She is the first woman to ever win the Fields Medal, otherwise known as the “Nobel Prize of Mathematics” in recognition of her contributions to the understanding of the symmetry of curved surfaces.
Dr. Mirzakhani, a graduate of mathematics from the Sharif University of Technology, who is currently a professor at the Stanford University, has already won several prestigious awards, including the Satter Prize from the American Mathematics Society in 2013, and also the Gold Medal of Mathematics Olympiad in 1995. In 2005, when she was only 30 years old and teaching at Princeton University, she was selected by the Popular Science Magazine as one of the 10 superior brains in North America.
On behalf of SUTA we sincerely congratulate Dr. Mirzakhani on her great achievement and wish her all the bests. For more information, please consult the following link: http://news.stanford.edu/news/2014/august/fields-medal-mirzakhani-081214.html.
