Brussels, 2 August 2018 - Middle East Diplomatic (MED Diplomatic) - A young Kurdish Professor, Caucher Birkar from University of Cambridge received the highest honour in mathematics, the Fields Medal giving by International Mathematical Union. Professor Birkar received his most prestige full award in the International Congress of Mathematicians in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Professor Birkar was a refuge from Kurdistan Region (Iran) but had to escape from Iranian mullah regime to UK in beginning of 2000. In a interview to international media, he said : “Kurdistan was an unlikely place for a kid to develop an interest in mathematics - I`m hoping that this news will put a smile on the faces of those 40 million Kurdish people.

The Cambridge University, where Professor Birkar is a member of Cambridge’s Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, categorised Birkar’s work as : Topics in modern algebraic geometry. Throughout his career, birational geometry has stood out as his main area of interest. He has devoted himself to the fundamental aspects of key problems in modern mathematics – such as minimal models, Fano varieties, and singularities. His theories have solved long-standing conjectures.

In a interview with Cambridge University Research Centre, Professor Gabriel Paternain, Head of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics said that “This is absolutely phenomenal, both for Caucher and for mathematics at Cambridge. Caucher was already an exceptional young researcher when he came to Cambridge, and he`s now one of the most remarkable people in this field. At Cambridge, we want to give all of our young researchers the opportunity to really explore their field early in their career: it can lead to some truly amazing things.”

The other three winners of the 2018 Fields medals are Peter Scholze from the University of Bonn, Akshay Venkatesh from the Institute of Advanced Studies and Alessio Figalli from ETH Zurich.
