As a mathematician, Dr. Sujatha Ramdorai indulges the audience with her passion for algebra and number theory, the curious coincidence of nature and math and a personal journey back to doing what she loves. At an impasse in her life, an opportunity arises for deeper thought into abstract mathematics. The road to recovery involved discovering a new hobby which unbeknownst was an extension of her passion all along. She is an algebraic number theorist best known for her work on Iwasawa theory. She is a professor of mathematics at the University of British Columbia, Canada. She was previously a professor at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. Working with her husband Srinivasan Ramdorai and Indian mathematics writer V.S. Sastry, Sujatha Ramdorai conceived of and partially funded the Ramanujan Math Park in Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh, which was inaugurated at the end of 2017. The park is dedicated to mathematics education and honours the great Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. Ramdorai became the first Indian to win the prestigious ICTP Ramanujan Prize in 2006. She was also awarded the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award, the highest honour in scientific fields by the Indian Government in 2004. She is also the recipient of the 2020 Krieger–Nelson Prize for her exceptional contributions to mathematics research. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
