Terence Tao, a UCLA mathematics professor, will receive the 2014 Royal Medal for physical sciences in December, according to a UCLA statement released on Wednesday.

The Royal Society of London, the oldest science academy in continuous existence, will present the 39 year-old with the prize for his many contributions to math, including those in harmonic analysis, prime number theory and computer science, according to the Royal Society website.

Tao recently won the $3 million Breakthrough Prize in mathematics. He also won the National Science Foundation’s Alan T. Waterman Award in 2008 and the Fields Medal in 2006.

The Royal Society annually awards three Royal Medals, also known as the Queen’s Medals, for contributions to the physical, biological and applied sciences.
