Congratulations to Eva Viehmann for receiving the Leibniz Prize Congratulations to Eva Viehmann for receiving the Leibniz Prize

Eva Viehmann from the University of Münster has been awarded the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize 2024 by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for her excellent research. With a prize money of 2.5 million euros, the Leibniz Prize is the most highly endowed German research award. Eva Viehmann has a close relationship to Bonn: she studied, completed her PhD and habilitation in Bonn and worked for a long time in the Arithmetic Geometry group at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Bonn.

In its statement, the DFG referred in particular to Eva Viehmann's influential work on arithmetic algebraic geometry as part of the Langlands program. She has already received several awards for her scientific achievements. The European Research Council (ERC) recognized her in 2011 with an ERC Starting Grant and six years later with a Consolidator Grant. She has been awarded the von Kaven Prize for outstanding scientific achievements in mathematics and the Felix Hausdorff Memorial Prize of the University of Bonn. In 2018, she was a speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Rio de Janeiro. The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina accepted her as a member in 2021.
Eva Viehmann, born in 1980, studied mathematics in Bonn. After completing her PhD in 2005 supervised by Michael Rapoport, she worked as a postdoc at the Université Paris-Sud. From 2006 to 2012 she was a research associate at the University of Bonn, and during this time she undertook research as a visiting academic at the University of Chicago. In 2010 there followed her habilitation in Bonn. In 2012 she was appointed Professor of Algebra at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and in 2022, she she took up a professorship at the University of Münster.

The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics congratulates Eva Viehmann on this great success!
