Michael Lacey

Michael Lacey is quite accomplished in the field of mathematics and has mentored several during his nearly four decades in this profession. Since the mid 1990s, Dr. Lacey has been on the faculty with the Georgia Technology Institute.

In addition to receiving the prestigious Salem prize, he has mentored several undergraduate and graduate students. Moreover, he has helped several students receive support for their studies through grant funding derived by such organizations as the MCTP. Dr. Lacey has been recognized for his contributions to the field of mathematics by the Guggenheim and Simons Foundations.

Dr. Michael Lacey was born in September 1959. He received his PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the mid 1980s. Learn more about Michael Lacey: https://www.math.gatech.edu/people/michael-lacey and https://www.genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/id.php?id=62509

His thesis was in the area of probability. However, in the years that followed, academically he is most noted for contributions in the area of harmonic analysis, and secondarily to ergotic theory.

Dr. Lacey has held teaching posts at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He also was at Louisiana State University. While at Chapel Hill, he collaborated with another colleague to prove the almost sure central limit theorem.

As mentioned, Dr. Lacey received the Salem Prize in the mid 1990s. This was for solving the bilinear Hilbert transform. The Salem prize was created by the widow of the late Raphael Salem. He had a keen interest in Fourier series, which is defined to mean, “An infinite series of trigonometric functions that represents an expansion of a periodic function.”

Dr. Michael Lacey has demonstrated the capacity to further the field of mathematics through joint collaboration with others, and mentoring those who exhibit a keen interest and youthful vitality to this profession. Read more: Michael Lacey |Math Alliance

He also has independently advanced the field through contributing resolution to some of the theorems that have perplexed many for some time.
