As a fresh graduate of ICTP's 2014 Postgraduate Diploma Programme in mathematics, it was already clear that Soheyla Feyzbakhsh was bound for a stellar career. She had been accepted to a PhD programme at the University of Edinburgh to pursue her research interest in algebraic geometry. At Edinburgh, she would earn ERC funding and win the university's Postgraduate Essay Prize in 2016, the latter a warm-up to her 2019 prize for best PhD dissertation in mathematical sciences at all Scottish universities.
In 2023, Feyzbakhsh received the prestigious Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematical Society "for her spectacular applications of wall-crossing techniques to questions in classical and enumerative algebraic geometry".
Now a senior lecturer and Royal Society University Research Fellow at Imperial College London, Feyzbakhsh has a new feather to add to her cap: she has been awarded the 2024 Boris Dubrovin medal by the Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA). The medal, which is awarded every two years, recognises exceptionally promising young researchers who have already made outstanding contributions to the fields of mathematical physics and geometry. The award cites her impressive results in algebraic geometry, with relevant implications for mathematical physics, in particular string theory.
The Boris Dubrovin  medal ceremony took place on 5 June 2024 at SISSA, during the conference Integrable System: geometrical and analytical approaches.
ICTP congratulates Soheyla on her latest achievement!
