Vladimir Voevodsky

Vladimir Voevodsky, who joined the School of Mathematics as Professor in 2002, is known for his work in the homotopy theory of schemes, algebraic K-theory, and interrelations between algebraic geometry and algebraic topology. He made one of the most outstanding advances in algebraic geometry in the past few decades by developing new cohomology theories for algebraic varieties. Among the consequences of his work are the solutions of the Milnor and Bloch-Kato conjectures.
