After his postdoc, Michael worked at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with Walter Philipp and made it possible to provide evidence of the almost certain central limit theorem. Later on, he Worked at Louisiana State University.
Lacey worked at Indiana University from 1989 to 1996 before he joined Georgia Institute of Technology in 1996, where he still works.
Achievements and Awards.
Lacey received the National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship when he was at Indiana University and studied the Hilbert transform. He received the Salem Prize because of his work on solving the Hilbert transform in 1996. Read more: Michael Lacey | Wikipedia
Lacey was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship award in 2004, and he joined the American Mathematician Society in 2012.
Michael has been the director of training grants for the MCTP and VIGRE awards from the NSF, which has been able to support several undergraduates, postdocs, and graduate students.
He has been a mentor to plenty of undergraduates who have gone on to do graduate programs, and his Ph.D. students have worked in the academic and industry jobs. Michael has mentored more than ten postdocs.
Michael researched on Harmonic Analysis and also Probability. He has done several research papers which have been supported by the National Science Foundation and have been received by the Fulbright Foundation, the Simons Foundation, Salem Prize and several other mathematical research institutes.
Michael specializes in pure mathematics, and some of his recent research paper publications include:
