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".

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."
