The AMS Council established this Lecture in 2018 to honor Maryam Mirzakhani (1977-2017), the first woman and the first Iranian to win a Fields Medal. Mirzakhani was a professor at Stanford University and a highly original mathematician who made a host of striking and influential contributions to hyperbolic geometry, complex analysis, topology, and dynamics.
Tatiana Toro, University of Washington, will deliver the inaugural Mirzakhani Lecture at the 2020 Joint Mathematics Meetings to be held in Denver, Colorado, January 15-18. The title of the talk will be Differential operators and the geometry of domains in Euclidean space. Date of Lecture: Thursday, January 16, 2020.
