Professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, USA.
Voevodsky, whose field within mathematics is algebraic geometry, is known for his work in the homology theory of schemes, algebraic K-theory, and interrelations between algebraic geometry and algebraic topology. He has been concerned with a synthesis of algebraic geometry and homotopy theory, two major branches of modern mathematics.
2002 Fields medalist for developing a new cohomology theory for algebraic varieties.
Coauthor (with A. Suslin and E.M. Friedlander) of Cycles, Transfers and Motivic Homology Theories (Princeton University Press, 2000).
