When he was a student in the Science, Mathematics, and Computer Science Magnate Program at Montgomery Blair High School, Lurie took part in the International Mathematical Olympiad, where he won a gold medal with a perfect score in 1994[2] In 1996 he took first place in the Westinghouse Science Talent Search and was featured in a front-page story in Washington Times[3] Lurie earned his Bachelor's degree in mathematics from Harvard College in 2000 and was awarded in the same year the Morgan Prize for his undergraduate thesis on Lie algebras[4] He earned his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology under supervision of Michael J Hopkins, in 2004 with a thesis on derived algebraic geometry In 2007, he became associate professor at MIT, and in 2009 he became professor at Harvard[5]

Mathematical work

Lurie's research interests started with logic and the theory of surreal numbers, while he was still in high school[6] He is best known for his work, starting with his thesis, on infinity-categories and derived algebraic geometry Derived algebraic geometry is a way of infusing homotopical methods into algebraic geometry, with two purposes: deeper insight into algebraic geometry eg into intersection theory and the use of methods of algebraic geometry in stable homotopy theory The latter area is the topic of Lurie's work on elliptic cohomology Infinity categories in the form of Joyal's quasi-categories are a convenient framework to do homotopy theory in abstract settings They are the main topic of his book Higher Topos Theory

Another part of Lurie's work is his article on topological field theories, where he sketches a classification of extended field theories using the language of infinity-categories cobordism hypothesis In joint work with Dennis Gaitsgory, he used his Nonabelian Poincaré duality in an algebraic-geometric setting, to prove the Siegel mass formula for function fields[disambiguation needed]

Lurie was one of the inaugural winners of the Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics in 2014, "for his work on the foundations of higher category theory and derived algebraic geometry; for the classification of fully extended topological quantum field theories; and for providing a moduli-theoretic interpretation of elliptic cohomology"[7] Lurie was also awarded a MacArthur "Genius Grant" Fellowship in 2014[8]
