Iranian-born Maths ´genius´ Maryam Mirzakhani dies

"Gone far too soon", the Iranian NASA scientist, Firouz Naderi, wrote in his latest post on Instagram.

Maryam Mirzakhani, the Iranian genius mathematician and the first-ever female victor of the prestigious Fields Medal prize, died of breast cancer at a hospital in USA on Saturday.

She made history in 2014 after becoming the first woman, as well as the first Iranian, to win the Fields Medal - nicknamed the "Nobel Prize of mathematics" - for her outstanding contributions to the fields of geometry and dynamical systems.

"A light was turned off today".

After a long battle with cancer, Professor Mirzakhani succumbed to cancer at the age of 40 at a hospital in the U.S. on Saturday. "But also a daughter, a mother and a wife".

Stanford University has not responded to a request for comment from Newsweek.

She is survived by husband Jan Vondrák, a Czech theoretical computer scientist, and their daughter Anahita.

She then earned her bachelor's degree from Iran's prestigious Sharif University of Technology in 1999, and followed up the rest of her education in the United States, where she earned a doctoral degree from Harvard University in 2004 and became full professor of mathematics at Stanford at the age of 31. "I felt that this was something I could do, and I wanted to pursue this path", she said after receiving the Fields Medal.

"In short, Mirzakhani was fascinated by the geometric and dynamic complexities of curved surfaces - spheres, doughnut shapes and even amoebas".
