Having won several different awards within the field of mathematics, Michael Lacey is one of the more notably successful professors of mathematics around today. He is a prominent member of the American Mathematics Society, and his achievements have been recognized widely, especially when it comes to his work in harmonic analysis, as well as probability.
Respectively, Micheal Lacey completed his graduate and Ph.D. degrees at Austin’s University of Texas and the Urbana-Champaign campus of the University of Illinois. Naturally, both of these useful degrees were in the field of mathematics.
While completing his Ph.D., Lacey had the privilege to be mentored by the one and only Walter Philipp. Some Limit Theroems, which was Lacey’s dissertation, discussed in great detail the important topic of Banach spaces. Read more: Michael Lacey | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey | GAtech
With Ph.D. in hand, Michael Lacey set out on his postdoctoral career. He began at Louisiana State University, where he served as an associate professor. Eventually he managed to get a position working together with Walter Philipp at North Carolina’s Chapel Hill University. Impressively, Micheal Lacey and Walter Philipp were able to prove the validity of the central limit theorem together.
During most of the early 1990s, Lacey worked with Indiana University. In 1996, he, along with his partner Christoph Thiele, received the important Salem Prize as a result of their impressive work, in which they discovered another method that could be used for space analysis.
Today, Michael can be found at Georgia Institute of Technology, where he has worked since 1996. Professor of Mathematics is one of his roles there, but he also serves as Associate Chair of Faculty. 2004 saw Mr. Lacey receive yet another ward.
This time, he and his partner Xiaochun Li managed to earn the notable Guggenheim Fellowship for their accomplishments. Lecturing and mentoring his students at the university is still quite important to Lacey, despite his incredibly successful career, as these students will one day take his place. His wishes to pass on as much knowledge and wisdom as possible.
