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
Welcome to Aaron Porter
Join us in welcoming Professor Aaron Porter as Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics & Statistics. Aaron joins us from a postdoctoral fellowship position in the University of Missouri Department of Statistics. His interests have primarily focused on research that is spatial and spatio-temporal in nature. His emphases are on geostatistical and lattice data, with applications to infectious disease modeling, small area estimation, big data and environmental data. In his spare time Aaron enjoys running and the arts, particularly drawing and making things with his hands.
