After Professor Ngo Bao Chau, Pham Tuan Huy is the second Vietnamese to receive an award from the Clay Mathematics Institute – which awards the most prestigious mathematics award in the US.

Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI), USA, on January 27 announced the awarding of Clay Research Fellowships to scientists Paul Minter and Pham Tuan Huy. Huy is the first Vietnamese to receive the Clay Research Fellowships – an award for young mathematicians who have just graduated or are about to graduate with a doctorate. Professor Ngo Bao Chau received another award of this institute – Clay Research Award (award for outstanding and potential research) in 2004 for his work on the Fundamental Lemma, which is also the work that He won the Fields Award in 2010.

Pham Tuan Huy is currently a fourth-year PhD student at the Department of Mathematics, Stanford University. To date, Huy has published 28 papers in international journals on Mathematics. Huy’s research direction is combinatorics, probability theory and related disciplines.

Huy was appointed as a research fellow at Clay Mathematics Institute for 5 years, from July 1, 2023.

Pham Tuan Huy was born in 1996, is a former student of the Gifted High School (Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City), twice won the gold medal at the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) in 2013, 2014. Huy then attended. earned a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and a master’s degree in Statistics from Stanford University; Master’s degree in Advanced Studies in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge. In both these prestigious schools, Huy achieved excellent results and won many awards.

In addition to Mathematics, Pham Tuan Huy was commented by teachers at the Gifted High School as a comprehensive and multi-talented person. Huy studied for 6 years at the Ho Chi Minh City Conservatory of Music, majoring in Piano. “In 20 years of teaching, although I have interacted with many good students and students, Pham Tuan Huy is still the student who made the most impression on me. Almost every exam Huy ranked first. That’s it. He’s also very humble, not because of his achievements, but he’s negligent. Not only is he good at math, he’s also good at literature, playing the piano, and singing karaoke are not bad,” said Dr. Tran Nam Dung, currently the Vice Principal of Pho School. Gifted information, shared in 2015.

CMI is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Institute’s annual research awards are usually awarded for two to four groundbreaking mathematical works. Seven Clay Prize winners later won the Fields Prize – considered the Nobel Prize in Mathematics.

According to mathematicians, the Clay Institute prize is “very prestigious”. “This is the top mathematics award in the US today. The winning mathematicians of the Clay Institute have a great future. Huy will definitely be a professor at world-renowned universities,” said a math professor. studied Vietnamese in the US, said.
