Yitang "Tom" Zhang is a Chinese-American mathematician working in the area of number theory. While working as a lecturer unknown to the research community, Zhang stunned the mathematical world by submitting an article establishing the first finite bound on gaps between prime numbers. This discovery, previously believed to be unattainable by current methods, received wide attention and lifted Zhang from obscurity to public fame overnight. Zhang has been awarded the 2013 Morningside Special Achievement Award in Mathematics, the 2013 Ostrowski Prize, the 2014 Frank Nelson Cole Prize in Number Theory, and the 2014 Rolf Schock Prize in Mathematics.
