Awards, Grants, and Achievements of Professor Michael Lacey

Michael Thoreau Lacey is one of the great mathematicians in America. He was born on September 26, 1959. He is a Bachelor of Science graduate from the University of Texas. Michael received his Ph.D. from University of Illinois in 1987 under the guidance of Walter Philip.

In his studies and research work, he has managed to solve mathematical problems related to ergodic theory, harmonic analysis, and probability. His Ph.D. thesis tackled issues that were aligned with the law of the iterated logarithm.

He later held two postdoctoral positions at the University of North Carolina and Louisiana State University. Proof of Central Theory was part of work he did at the University of North Carolina, which was facilitated by the help of Walter Philip.

In 1989 Michael moved to Indiana University. He served this institution till 1996. During this period he was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship by National Science Foundation. Additionally, Michael worked with Christoph Thiele during that period.

They studied bilinear Hilbert transformation, and they also solved this transformation in 1996. As a result of that, they won an award known as the Salem Prize. Read more: Michael Lacey | Facebook

Lacey has been working at Georgia Institute of Technology since 1996. He has been serving this Institute as professor of mathematics. In 2004 he received another fellowship, and he collaborated with Xianchun in this Guggenheim Fellowship.

His hard work made him become one of the mathematicians in American Mathematician Society in 2012.

Awards and Grants Received by Professor Lacey

The brilliant professor of mathematics has received several grants for his research work. In 2015 he received Australian Research Council Grant.
