Why Is James Maynard Influential?

James Maynard is a research professor at the University of Oxford, and was previously a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Montreal. He completed his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at University of Cambridge in 2009, and earned his Ph.D. at Oxford in 2013.

One of the youngest names among influential mathematicians, Maynard was just 26 when he came to prominence after providing a different proof to a popular theory of prime gaps at the time provided by Yitang Zhang. Indeed, Maynard is seen as a kind of specialist in prime gaps, and also solved a conjecture proposed by Paul Erdős concerning the topic. More recently, he helped prove the Duffin–Schaeffer conjecture.

For his work, Maynard has received several major awards, including the SASTRA Ramanujan Prize, the Whitehead Prize, the EMS Prize, and the Cole Prize in Number Theory.
