Special Keynote Speaker:

 Manjul Bhargava
Princeton University, 2014 Fields Medallist 
Manjul Bhargava received the Fields Medal in 2014 for pioneering new methods in the field of number theory.  Bhargava is the first Canadian to receive the Fields Medal, considered the highest honor in mathematics.

Bhargava was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and grew up primarily in Long Island, New York.  Bhargava studied at Harvard University, where he received his A.B. in 1996. In the same year, he received the Morgan Prize of the American Mathematical Society for his undergraduate research. He started his Ph.D. studies at Princeton, where he was advised by number theorist Andrew Wiles, famous for his 1995 proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem. In his groundbreaking 2001 Ph.D. thesis, Bhargava reformulated and generalized Gauss's law of composition on binary quadratic forms, with surprising results. Bhargava worked afterwards as a visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and at Harvard University, for one year each, before joining the mathematics department at Princeton University as the R. Brandon Fradd Professor of Mathematics.  He also held the prestigious Aisenstadt Chair at the University of Montreal during the academic year 2005-6.  Bhargava's work has continued to transform his field, particularly regarding the solutions of cubic equations.

Besides the Fields Medal, Bhargava has received numerous other awards and prizes, such as the AMS Cole Prize (2008), the Blumenthal Award for the Advancement of Research in Pure Mathematics (2005), the Packard Foundation Fellowship in Science and Engineering (2004), and the Mathematical Association of America's Merten M. Hasse Prize for Exposition (2003).

Bhargava is also an accomplished tabla player who has performed in concert halls, and is an admirer of Sanskrit poetry.
