Karim Adiprasito is a German mathematician working at the University of Copenhagen and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

He has transformed into an art applying ideas and techniques from combinatorics to many areas of mathematics. We briefly mention some of his spectacular achievements.

Together with June Huh and Eric Katz, Adiprasito solved the Heron–Rota–Welsh conjecture on the log-concavity of the characteristic polynomial of matroids. Using Mikhail Gromov's work, Adipasito, together with Bruno Benedetti, solved the Hirsch conjecture for flag triangulations of manifolds.

For his work Professor Adiprasito was awarded 2019 New Horizons Prize for Early-Career Achievement in Mathematics. In 2020 he was awarded EMS Prize of the European Mathematical Society.
