Ciprian Manolescu, professor of mathematics at UCLA, received the 2019 E. H. Moore Research Article Prize from the American Mathematical Society.

The society is dedicated to advancing research and connecting the global mathematical community through publications, conferences, advocacy and awareness programs. The Moore Research Article Prize is awarded to an article that has appeared in one of the society’s primary research journals. Manolescu’s paper was recognized for resolving the triangulation conjecture, showing that there are topological manifolds that do not admit a simplicial triangulation in each dimension greater than four.

Manolescu’s work focuses on low-dimensional topology. He is the recipient of the 2012 European Mathematical Society Prize and the 2011 Robert Sorgenfrey Distinguished Teaching Award.
