We are delighted to announce that IMS member Martin Hairer is one of the recipients of the highly prestigious Fields Medals this year. http://www.icm2014.org/en/awards/prizes/f3 Martin Hairer’s Fields Medal was “for his outstanding contributions to the theory of stochastic partial differential equations, and in particular for the creation of a theory of regularity structures for such equations.” Martin delivered one of the IMS Medallion Lectures at the annual meeting in Sydney this year.

The Fields Medals http://www.mathunion.org/general/prizes/fields/details/are awarded every four years by the International Mathematical Union at the ICM (this year in Seoul, South Korea).
