Russian-born French mathematician and Fields Medallist

Kontsevich is Professor of Mathematics at the prestigious Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques in France, as well as a distinguished professor at the University of Miami. Having dual Russian and French citizenship, Kontsevich studied at Moscow University before leaving before degree completion to take a position as a researcher at the Institute for Information Transmission Problems in Moscow. His research there attracted the attention of the University of Bonn, where he was invited to attend. While there he sketched a proof of the famous Witten Conjecture, and was recognized as a true mathematical genius. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Bonn in 1992.

Kontsevich’s work focuses on difficult problems in the geometry of mathematical physics, such as knot theory (literally: the study of mathematical knots), as well as quantization and mirror symmetry. One of the best mathematicians of his generation, Kontsevich won the Fields Medal in 1998. He was awarded the Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics in 2014.
