In 2014, Maryam was recognized with the Fields Medal, the highest-ranking award in mathematics, for her efforts in what's known as hyperbolic geometry. Unfortunately, when she was honored with the Fields Medal, she was already tackling her last challenge, the breast cancer that eventually killed her.
