Zoltán Szabó (November 24, 1965) is a professor of mathematics at Princeton University. He created, along with Peter Ozsváth, Heegaard Floer homology, a homology theory for 3-manifolds. For this contribution to the field of topology, Ozsváth and Szabó were awarded the 2007 Oswald Veblen Prize in Geometry.[1]

He got his B.A. from Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, Hungary in 1990, and he received his Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 1994. In 2010, he was elected honorary member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
