Maryna Viazovska is the 2022 Fields Medal winner from Ukraine. She is a professor at the Institute of Mathematics of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
The mission of ICMU is to support top-level research in mathematics, with special emphasis on training younger generations of scientists and the development of mathematics in Ukraine.
Yulia’s Dream is a free remote mathematics enrichment and research program for exceptional high school students from Ukraine. It was established in March 2022 at the Mathematics Department of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Yulia’s Dream is dedicated to the memory of Yulia Zdanovska, a 21-year-old graduate of the National University of Kyiv, a winner of the 2017 European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad, and a teacher for the “Teach for Ukraine” program who was killed by a Russian-fired missile in her home city of Kharkiv.
