A celebrated American mathematician, Michael has contributed critical research material that earned him several achievement awards. A sampling includes the prestigious Simons Foundations and Guggenheim Fellowship recognition. His collaborative piece with colleague Xiaochun Li assimilated his Guggenheim victory in 2004.
The former UIUC (University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign) alumnus matriculated as a philosophy major and earned a doctoral degree. He’s credited his success to hard work and having Walter Phillip as a mentor.
With his groundbreaking research and practice, he joined University of North Carolina (UNC) – Chapel Hill and LSU (Louisiana State University) post-doctoral faculty. Lacey and Phillip also gained recognition for headlining a rich presentation at UNC, explaining CLT (Central Limit Theorem) profound concepts.
Dr. Lacey specializes in pure mathematics. He’s developed specialized interests in probability and harmonic analysis, which he practices at Georgia Tech. His affiliation with the ivy league school commenced in 1996. He’d previously served at Indiana University where the NSF (National Science Foundation) awarded him, postdoctoral fellowship.
His collaboration with the scholar, Christoph Thiele solving Bilinear Hilbert transform: Alberto Calderón conjecture earned him further recognition. They were declared Salem Prize winners in 1996. Lacey is affiliated with the AMS (American Mathematical Society) as of 2012. Read more: Michael Lacey |Math Alliance and Michael Lacey | Wikipedia
Besides his professorial duties at Georgia Tech, Lacey assumes the role of oversight to NSF’s award programs MCTP and VIGRE.
As training grants director he’s particularly entrusted with guiding program participants accepted to complete graduate, undergraduate or post-doctoral degrees. He lends his expertise as a mentor to those at the pre-doctoral and doctoral levels.
