Whitehead Prize – Dr Eugen Vărvărucă, University of Reading
Whitehead Prize – Dr Sarah Waters, University of Oxford
Whitehead Prize – Dr Andreas Winter, University of Bristol
Professor Dan Segal is awarded the Pólya Prize for his major contributions to group theory.
Professor Trevor Wooley FRS is awarded the Fröhlich Prize for his work in analytic number theory, and in particular his spectacular advances in the study of Waring's problem on representing integers as a sum of kth powers.
Professor Ian Agol is awarded the Senior Berwick Prize in recognition of the paper Criteria for virtual fibering published in volume 2 of the Journal of Topology, 2008.
Dr Toby Gee is awarded a Whitehead Prize for his work in number theory, and in particular his many contributions to the theory of automorphic forms.
Dr Eugen Vărvărucă is awarded a Whitehead Prize for ground-breaking analysis of free boundary problems for linear and nonlinear elliptic equations, with important applications, in arbitrary dimensions.
Dr Sarah Waters is awarded a Whitehead Prize for her contributions to the fields of physiological fluid mechanics and the biomechanics of artificially engineered tissues.
Dr Andreas Winter is awarded a Whitehead Prize for his major contributions to key areas of quantum information theory.
