A Professor at the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) in Princeton, New Jersey, since 2012, Vladimir Voevodsky worked on the homotopy theory of schemes, algebraic K-theory, and interrelations between algebraic geometry, and algebraic topology.

He was awarded the 2002 Fields Medal “especially for his work on motivic cohomology and homotopy theory for algebraic varieties and his proof of the Milnor conjecture.”
