The world of mathematics can be complicated for many, this is one of the reasons why the professor of mathematics Michael Lacey dedicates so much of his life to mentoring his students to make sure they are learning everything they need to succeed in their education and beyond. Michael Lacey’s career as a professor began in 1987 shortly after he graduated from the University of Illinois. He began as an assistant professor in the city of Baton Rouge at Louisiana State University.
Currently, he holds the position of Full Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology. At the Georgia Institute of Technology, Michael Lacey also holds the position of Associate Chair for Faculty. He earned this position in 2017 for their school of mathematics. Michael Lacey has done a lot in his career both to advance math and help his students achieve their goals. He is highly respected in his field and an asset to the world of mathematics.
Michael Lacey has earned a lot of recognition during his time in the field of math. One of the most notable was in 2013 by the American Mathematics Society. That year, he was made a Fellow of the society as recognition for the many accomplishments he had made in his career. Another notable accomplishment was when he received the position of Guggenheim Fellow in 2004. This is something that very few mathematicians earn each year, only between 2 and 4. During his career, he has also submitted well over 100 journal articles.
Michael Lacey is a favorite among his students for both his teaching methods and his dedication to mentoring. He has assisted many students either with his direct mentoring or his organization of different grants that helped students continue their education. His research in the field of math had led to Michael Lacey earning millions of dollars worth of contracts and grants for himself and his department. Many of these grants were awarded to Michael Lacey for his extensive work with harmonic analysis. Another one of the fields of study that interests Michael Lacey is the topic of singular integrals.
