Celebrating Maryam Mirzakhani

Maryam Mirzakhani

In occasion of the initiative "Celebrating Women in Mathematics," the Department of Mathematical Sciences invites all students and staff to participate in an event to celebrate Maryam Mirzakhani, the first and only woman so far to win a Fields medal.

Join us and get inspired by this extraordinary mathematician that unfortunately left us way too soon.


  • Farbod Shokrieh (KU): Maryam Mirzakhani (1977–2017)
  • Nathalie Wahl (KU): Counting curves on surfaces - a glimpse at Maryam Mirzakhani's work

A reception will be offered to all participants after the talk.

Audience: Everyone - no prior knowledge required.
