"In short, Mirzakhani was fascinated by the geometric and dynamic complexities of curved surfaces - spheres, doughnut shapes and even amoebas", Stanford said in a news release.
Mirzakhani at the time said she had dreamed of becoming a writer when she was young, before taking an interest in mathematical problems. She won two gold medals at the International Mathematical Olympiad, bringing home the top honors in 1994 and 1995. But her passion and gift for mathematics eventually won out.
As a professor and scholar, Mirzakhani's pictures helped her write stories with her math.
Mirzakhani is survived by her husband, Jan Vondrák, and a daughter, Anahita - who once referred to her mother's work as "painting" because of the doodles and drawings that marked her process of working on proofs and problems, according to an obituary released by Stanford.
