**2014 Fields Medal Winners**

The 2014 Fields Medalists have been announced. The Fields Medal, widely considered the most prestigious award in mathematics, is given to between two and four mathematicians under age 40, and is intended "to recognize outstanding mathematical achievement for existing work and for the promise of future achievement."

The medalists pictured above are (clockwise from upper left),

- Artur Avila, a Brazilian mathematician whose most notable research is in the study of chaos theory and dynamical systems;
- Manjul Bhargava of Princeton University, whose research focuses on number theory and algebra;
- Martin Hairer of the University of Warwick, whose research focuses on stochastic partial differential equations; and
- Maryam Mirzakhani, an Iranian maths professor at Stanford University whose work focuses on the geometry of Riemann surfaces.

Additionally, Maryam Mirzakhani's selection marks the first female winner of the Fields Medal since the award was established nearly 80 years ago.

## Spotlight on AMS

**Congratulations to Professor Diniz Behn**

Professor Cecilia Diniz Bhen, who joined AMS last year and whose research interests lie in differential equations with applications to mathematical biology, has received a research grant from Children's Hospital Colorado. Professor Diniz Behn, along with Melanie Cree Green from the Pediatric Endocrinology Dept. of Children's Hospital Colorado received funding for their project entitled, "Hepatic and Andipose Insulin Resistance in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome".
