Maryam Mirzakhani Cause Of Death: How Did The Fields Medalist Die?

Maryam Mirzakhani, the first woman to be awarded the prestigious Fields Medal for mathematics, has died in the U.S.

According to doctors, her cancer had spread to her bones. "It breaks my heart... gone far too soon", she wrote. "Sad to learn about the passing of #MaryamMirzakhani - the intelligent #Iranian daughter, wife, mother, professor".

The Fields Medal, often described as the mathematician's Nobel Prize, is given every four years to no more than four mathematicians, all of whom are 40 or younger.

An Iranian origin, Mirzakhani was bestowed with this award in 2014 for her work on complex geometry and dynamical systems. When her Fields Medal award was announced there, the photo used showed her not wearing an hijab.

Mirzakhani said she enjoyed pure mathematics because of the elegance and longevity of the questions she studies. She was a professor at Stanford University. She is survived by her husband and young daughter. Still others, praised the courageous move as it re-opened a discussion regarding the limitations on women which still exist in Iran. Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said her death was a cause for grief for all Iranians.

A year later, she became the first Iranian student to achieve a ideal score and win two gold medals at the Olympiad. "Mirzakhani was the first Iranian woman elected to the National Academy of Sciences a year ago, in recognition of her 'distinguished achievement in original research.' She was in good company: Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell were past honorees".

Eventually, Mirzakhani would receive her PhD from Harvard University, under the tutelage of fellow Fields Medal victor, Curtis McMullen in 2004. She then taught at Princeton University before moving to Stanford in 2008.
