Michael Lacey: An inspirational and talented Mathematician

Mathematics is arguably an essential aspect of our day-day life. In fact, some people consider math as a lifestyle rather than an academic element. One of such people is Michael Lacey, an American Mathematician. His interest in mathematics could be better described as a talent. Lacey has been teaching math for over two decades.

Lacey, who was born in 1959 attended some of the best institutions in mathematics. These played a crucial role in sharpening his intellectual acumen in the field. He graduated with a B.S in Mathematics from the University of Texas in 1981. Read more: Michael Lacey | Wikipedia

He furthered his education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he received his first Ph. D in Mathematics in 1987. Walter Phillips provided him with the much-needed guidance in undertaking his thesis which covered the area of probability in Banach spaces.

He started working as an assistant professor at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. After about one year, he moved to the University of North Carolina where he worked in a similar position. He got an opportunity to work with Walter Philipp in research aimed at providing a central limit theorem. He later joined Indiana University in Bloomington where he worked for about seven years until 1996.

It is during this period that he received a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the National Science Foundation. Together with other mathematicians, he won the Salem Prize for solving a conjecture by Alberto Calderon. Lacey has also received other notable awards such as the Georgia Tech NSF-ADVANCE Mentoring Award and the Simons Fellow Award.

Lacey has been a professor of mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology since 1996. He has also held other positions in various institutions around the globe. He is well-versed in the areas of probability, ergodic theory, and harmonic analysis. He became a fellow of the American Mathematics Society in 2012.
