Elia Bruè wins the Pythagoras Prize 2023

After a few years of stop, the Pythagoras Prize is back. Starting this year, it is organized by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Calabria with the sponsorship and scientific supervision of the Italian Mathematical Union. The Prize is aimed at those Italian mathematicians under 30 who have achieved important scientific results in the field of mathematics, and the winner of the 2023 edition was Elia Bruè for his scientific profile of absolute and international excellence. Born in Macerata, he received his Ph.D. from the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa and then held a postdoctoral position for two years at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and is currently Assistant Professor at the Department of Decision Sciences at Bocconi University. Despite his young age, Bruè can boast the 2021 Iapichino Prize from the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei and the 2022 Stampacchia Prize from the National Society of Sciences, Letters and Arts. Elia Bruè conducts his research activities in various areas of mathematics, particularly with studies on Riemannian geometry and fluid mechanics that are well known and appreciated internationally.

The award ceremony will be held September 22 at the Pythagorean Museum and Gardens in Crotone, during which Bruè will give a Lectio Magistralis.
