Professor Mladen Bestvina (on the photo with his wife) is a Croatian-Americna mathematician, born in 1959 in the city of Osijek, Croatia. He completed his studies of Mathematics at the University of Zagreb. He was a successful competitor at International Mathematical Olympiads for High School students. In the past twenty years he achieved spectacular results in Geometric Group Theory, for which he had an honor of delivering a plenary lecture on 10th July 2022 at the International Congress of Mathematicians. The ICM is organized every fourth year, and for each Congress about 14 pleanry lecturers are chosen who had the most important contributions in the field of Mathematical sciences in the previous period.

Professor Mladen Bestvina is a Croatian-Americna mathematician, born in 1959 in the city of Osijek, Croatia. He completed his studies of Mathematics at the University of Zagreb. He was a successful competitor at International Mathematical Olympiads for High School students.

In the past twenty years he achieved spectacular results in Geometric Group Theory, for which he had an honor of delivering a plenary lecture on 10th July 2022 at the International Congress of Mathematicians. The ICM is organized every fourth year, and for each Congress about 14 plenary lecturers are chosen who had the most important contributions in the field of Mathematical sciences in the previous period.

Prior to Professor Bestvina, another Croatian-American mathematician Professor William Feller (1906-1970, born in Croatia's capital Zagreb), delivered a plenary lecture at the ICM organized in Birmingham, UK, in 1958.

Since 2012, Professor Mladen Bestvina is a correspondent memeber of Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts (HAZU) in Zagreb.

We recall in passing that the well known Fields Medals (often described as "Nobel Prizes" in the field of Mathematics) are also awarded at ICM. Among four recipients for 2022 is Professor Maryna Viazovska from Kiiv, Ukraine (employed in Switzerland), for her important results in Packing Theory.
