Huy has become the second Vietnamese to be honored by the institute.

Vietnamese-French mathematician Ngo Bao Chau and Gérard Laumon received the 2004 Clay Research Award for their proof of the Fundamental Lemma for unitary groups.

Huy, born 1996, will receive his PhD from Stanford University this year. He has published 28 articles on numerous journals on mathematics. He was an alumnus from the VNU-HCM High School for the Gifted, and won gold medals twice at the International Mathematical Olympiad in 2013 and 2014.

The Clay Mathematics Institute, founded in 1998, is a private, non-profit foundation dedicated to increasing and disseminating math knowledge.
