The honorary doctorate was awarded to acknowledge his world-class research within geometric aspects of mathematical physics and was given at the Annual University Celebration at SDU.

Maxim is Professor of Mathematics at the Institute des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHES).  
One of Professor Kontsevich's most distinguished achievements is the 1998 Fields Medal, a recognition that parallels the prestige of a Nobel Prize in the realm of mathematics. His extensive contributions to the field have earned him membership in the French and European Academies, as well as the National Academy of Sciences.

Congratulations to you, Maxim, and to Centre for Quantum Mathematics (QM) who has created a magnetic, academic environment within the quantum research field.
