Micheal Lacey’s Great Accomplishments in Mathematics
Michael Lacey is an American professor specializing in mathematics at the University of Georgia Institute of Technology. He received his first P.H.D from the University of Illinois in 1987 at the Urbana Champaign. This was preceded by one of his most prominent thesis on probability in Banach spaces which however was beginning to many other areas of interest him invested his time.
These included the ergodic theory he developed on after the probability thesis and the harmonic analysis which are still areas of interest to present.
After getting his P.H.D, Michael Lacey worked in various high-level institutions such as the Louisiana State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as a professor of mathematics. As honors for his dedication and discoveries, he received A National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellowship while at Indiana University from 1989 to 1996.
He extended his influence by working in conjunction with Christoph Thiele to solve the Bilinear Hilbert transformation theory which Albert Calderon was working on at the time, and they were awarded the Salem Prize.
Michael has continued to lecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology since 1996, and in the year 2004, he was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship together with Xiaochun Li for joint work. Since the year 2012, Michael became a full member of the American Mathematical Society.
He has also written several books such as ‘On a Conjecture of E.M, Stein on the Hilbert Transform on Vector Fields’, and several articles in mathematics and physics especially in ar xiv since the year 1999 to present. He is also the director of many training grants within the university especially the VIGRE and the MCTP awards by the NSF. These awards have supported many undergraduates, and he has mentored many postdocs. Read more: Michael Lacey | Facebook
He is currently the chair of the National Alliance for Doctoral studies in the Mathematical Sciences. Also, he has enabled many students to progress to leading graduate programs as well as many P.H.D students who have joined in the academic and industrial careers across the globe. His current field of expertise is in pure mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology.
