Fields Medal

There is lots of excitement at UWA this morning with the news overnight that Akshay Venkatesh was one of the winners of the 2018 Fields medal. He did his undergraduate here in the 90s. I watched the live feed of the opening ceremony to see it. There is a great article at the Quanta magazine about him and his work. Other articles are here, here and here, and a video here.
