Scholze is Director of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics and Professor of Mathematics at the University of Bonn in Germany. Scholze received his bachelor’s degree in Mathematics as well as his master’s and Ph.D. from the University of Bonn, the latter awarded in 2012. Scholze, one of the world’s great mathematicians, won the Fields Medal in 2018.

Scholze’s interests are mainly in a field known as arithmetic geometry, essentially the application of algebraic geometry to problems in number theory. He has proved in more compact form several of the most fundamental theories in all of mathematics. The University of California at Berkeley appointed Scholze to Chancellor’s Professor of Mathematics in 2014, and he also served as a Research Fellow at the Clay Mathematics Institute in New Hampshire for several years, beginning in 2011. Notably, Scholze’s professorship at Bonn made him the youngest full professor in Germany, at the age of 24.

Scholze is winner of the SASTRA Ramanujan Prize in 2013, as well as the Frank Nelson Cole Prize in Algebra in 2015, and the Fermat Prize that same year.
