Prof. Zizhou Tang is the third winner of the TWAS Prize in Mathematics from the Chern Institute of Mathematics after CAS members Weiping Zhang and Yiming Long. The prize is given to Prof. Zizhou Tang "For his fundamental contributions to differential geometry, including outstanding works in isoparametric theory and harmonic maps."


Over the years Prof. Zizhou Tang has been engaged in research on manifold geometry and topology, especially isoparametric theory and harmonic maps. His research papers were published in international authoritative journals such as Journal of Differential Geometry, Topology, and the comprehensive journal of mathematics J.Reine Angew. Math..
