Ramanujan Prize Winner 2019

Hoàng Hiệp Phạm


2019 DST-ICTP-IMU Ramanujan Prize for Young Mathematicians from Developing Countries

jointly awarded by

  • The Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics,
  • The Department of Science and Technology (DST, Government of India), and
  • The International Mathematical Union (IMU).


It is our pleasure to announce that the winner of the 2019 Ramanujan Prize for Young Mathematicians from Developing Countries is Professor Hoàng Hiệp Phạm of the Institute of Mathematics, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology in Hanoi.

The prize is in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of complex analysis, and in particular to pluripotential theory, where he obtained an important result on the singularities of plurisubharmonic functions; complex Monge-Ampère equations and log canonical thresholds, which have important applications in algebraic and complex Kähler geometry. The prize is also in recognition of Dr Pham's important organizational role in the advancement of mathematics in his home country, Vietnam.

The selection committee consisted of Alicia Dickenstein (University of Buenos Aires), Lothar Goettsche (ICTP, chair), Kapil Hari Paranjape (Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Mohali), Philibert Nang (École normale supérieure Libreville, Gabon),  and Van Vu (Yale University).
