Award-winning Iranian mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani has reportedly passed away due to cancer at a hospital in the United States.
Here's a Harvard lecture by Mirzakahni in November of 2014, just nine months before she was awarded the Fields Medal.
Mirzakhani was hospitalized last week in California and tests showed that cancer had spread to her bone marrow.
"A light was turned off today".
She scored the International Mathematical Olympiad's gold medal twice - in 1994 and 1995.
He said that the death of the young Iranian math genius has caused grief for all Iranians who take pride in their country's prominent scientific figures.
The award recognized her sophisticated and highly original contributions to the fields of geometry and dynamical systems, particularly in understanding the symmetry of curved surfaces such as spheres. "I felt that this was something I could do, and I wanted to pursue this path", she said after receiving the Fields Medal.
She was a research fellow at Clay Mathematics Institute from 2004 to 2008 and served as an assistant professor of mathematics at Princeton University.
