At the beginning of September, Karim Adiprasito was one of three young researchers to be honored at the Eurocomb Conference in Bergen (Norway) with the European Prize in Combinatorics. This prestigious prize for applied mathematics is awarded only once every two years.
The 27-year-old German got his doctoral degree just two years ago at Freie Universität Berlin and is meanwhile Professor of Mathematics at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In December 2014, the highly talented young academic received the Ernst Reuter Prize for his outstanding PhD dissertation.
The European Prize in Combinatorics was established in 2003 to recognize excellent contributions in Combinatorics, Discrete Mathematics and their Applications by young European researchers not older than 35. The prize carries a monetary award of 2500 euros.
