    "Maryam Mirzakhani became the first woman to win coveted Fields Medal on 13 August 2014 in Seoul (South Korea). The award recognized her contributions to the field of geometry, particularly in studying the symmetry of curved surfaces such as spheres. She was one of four mathematicians who were awarded the Fields Medal 2014. Three others were:
    1 Manjul Bhargava of Princeton University, for developing new approaches in the geometry of numbers
    2 Martin Hairer of the University of Warwick, for his contributions to the Theory of Stochastic Partial Differential Equations
    3 Artur Avila of the Institute of Mathematics of Jussieu, for his contributions in Dynamical Systems Theory"
