Artur Avila Cordeiro de Melo (born 29 June 1979) is a Brazilian-French mathematician working primarily on dynamical systems and spectral theory. He is one of the winners of the 2014 Fields Medal, being the first Latin American to win such award.
Research and awards
At the age of 16, Avila won a gold medal at the 1995 International Mathematical Olympiad and received a scholarship for the Instituto Nacional de Matemática Pura e Aplicada (National Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics), where he got his PhD when he was 21 years old. Later, as a research mathematician, he received in 2006 a CNRS Bronze Medal as well as the Salem Prize, and was a Clay Research Fellow. He became the youngest Professorial Fellow (directeur de recherches) at the CNRS in 2008. The same year, he was awarded one of the ten prestigious European Mathematical Society prizes, and in 2009 he won the Herbrand Prize from the French Academy of Sciences. He was a plenary speaker at the 2010 International Congress of Mathematicians. In 2011, he was awarded the Michael Brin Prize. He received the Early Career Award from the International Association of Mathematical Physics in 2012 and the Fields Medal in 2014.
