Maryam Mirzakhani, the first woman to receive the Fields Medal for Mathematics, has lost a four-year battle against breast cancer.
The award is considered the mathematics equivalent of the Nobel Prize. The prize was for "her outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces".
Mirzakhani was born in Tehran, Iran on May 3, 1977, and she quickly displayed an awesome talent for math.
After earning a doctorate at Harvard, Mirzakhani accepted a position as assistant professor at Princeton University and as a research fellow at the Clay Mathematics Institute before joining the Stanford faculty, the university said.
Mirzakhani' friend Firouz Naderi announced her death on Saturday on Instagram, and her relatives confirmed the death to the Mehr agency in Iran.
In a 2014 interview with the Guardian, she described the excitement and challenge of mathematics.
In 1994, she won the gold medal in the Iranian International Mathematical Olympiad at age 17.
