Miles Reid awarded Sylvester Medal

Miles Reid has been awarded the Royal Society's Sylvester Medal "for his exceptionally creative research and fundamental insights into higher-dimensional algebraic geometry, in particular the minimal model program for 3-folds, and for untiring work for the community of algebraic geometers".

Read more about this prestigious award from the Royal SocietyLink opens in a new window and about Miles’s live and work in the press releaseLink opens in a new window.

Upon receiving the news, Miles writes

“I do not intend to retire anytime soon. My work is my purpose and main pleasure in life.

I enjoy work with project students. Like me, these often have a unique world view, individual thought processes and the ability to concentrate on a narrow problem to the exclusion of the world around. This doesn’t always benefit small talk at parties!

I am delighted that more women are becoming involved in STEM subject research, but we still have a long way to go in diversity issues. While gender is still very much a work in progress, the class divide in countries like the UK and the Eurocentric imbalance resulting from our colonial past represent even bigger challenges."
