State University of New York awards the title for excellence in research to Ilir Snopçe

The State University of New York at Binghamton awards the title for excellence in research to Ilir Snopçe, lecturer at South East European University-Tetovo. Ilir Snopce had already distinguished himself with his publication in Archiv der Mathematik.  At this time, he has two articles under refereed consideration with Journal of Group Theory and the Journal of Algebra.

His graduate adviser said, “Ilir shows a research ability and mathematical maturity not usually seen at such an early stage in one’s career. In addition, he has extensive knowledge in the different disciplines of mathematics that is beyond the expertise of most graduate students. Snopçe’s research in Nottingham groups and pro-p groups via Lie rings has followed the highly successful work of E. Zelmanov, recipient of the Fields Medal (an equivalent to the Nobel Prize in mathematics).  Snopçe’s work is distinguished for taking mathematical approaches in serious and exciting new directions.
Ilir Snopçe was born in 30.08.1980, in Gostivar. Since primary and secondary school, Ilir has gained numerous awards in different mathematical competitions. He soared to success at the World Mathematic Olympic Competition in Bucharest-Romania (1999), where he gained the third place (bronze). In undergraduate studies, Ilir finished in the Faculty of Mathematics-University of St. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje, with a 10.00 GPA and became the first student of his Faculty with this GPA. In 2003, he was awarded Student of the Year at the University of St. Cyril and Methodius. In 2004, he was hired as an assistant at SEEU. In January 2005, he continued his graduate studies at the State University of New York at Binghamton, and after completing his master studies in 2007, he continues working there on his doctoral studies. For three months (June, July and August 2009), he was guest of the University of Ghotingen in Germany (the most famous University in Europe for mathematics), where he did research together with other world renown mathematicians.
