Chevalley Prize in Lie Theory 2018 Dennis Gaitsgory

Second award: to Dennis Gaitsgory, for his work on the geometric Langlands program, especially his fundamental contributions to the categorical Langlands conjecture and its extension in his recent work with Dima Arinkin. Gaitsgory is largely responsible for having created a systematic theory from what had been a collection of provocative ideas and insights.

Chevalley Prize in Lie Theory 2016 Geordie Williamson

First award: to Geordie Williamson for his work on the representation theory of Lie algebras and algebraic groups. His results include proofs and re-proofs of some longstanding conjectures as well as spectacular counterexamples to the expected bounds in others.
