A glimpse into history: women and prestigious science awards
The Fields Medal, the maths' closest analog to the Nobel, was given to a woman only once – in 2014, it went to Maryam Mirzakhani from Iran. With respect to such statistics, Uhlenbeck's triumph may be considered an important historical event.
When she entered the university, Karen majored in physics, but later switched to math. Her love to both these fields led Uhlenbeck to the theories that have revolutionized the understanding of the intersection of mathematics and physics. Karen is one of the founders of the field of geometric analysis.
Karen now is a role model for every young woman interested in science. She made history, and may be rightfully considered one of the most remarkable female scientists of all time.
