Michael Lacey – A Brilliant Mind
Men and women who were considered mathematical geniuses have given great contributions to the world like Newton, Einstein, Archimedes, Hawkings, and now we add the name Michael Thoreau Lacy. Mr. Lacey’s first academia experience was his graduation from the University of Texas with a Bachelor of Science in 1981. Read more: Michael Lacey | Wikipedia
Other higher learning institutions included graduating from the University of Illinois where he achieved a Ph.D., followed by attending the University of North Carolina, then the Louisiana State University. Dr. Lacy also served as Assistant Professor at the same educational institutions that he attended. Learn more about Madison Street Capital: https://www.genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/id.php?id=62509
From 1989 to 1996, Michael was on the faculty board at the Indiana University where he received a postdoctoral fellowship from the National Science Foundation. He, along with fellow instructors and friends in the math field are responsible for solving many math theorems. Michael Lacey has mathematical emphasis in the fields of harmonic analysis and the theory of probability.
Lacey was also an invited visiting professor at prestigious foreign institutions and universities like the Helsinki University in Finland and the Wallenberg Fellow in Sweden. He also taught at the University of Crete, the University of British Columbia and held a position in the research department at the Schrodinger Institute in Austria.
Presently, Michael Lacy is a senior professor of Mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology (‘Georgia Tech’) in Atlanta, Georgia. His Georgia Tech directory not only lists him as Professor Lacy but also as the Associate Chair for Faculty. He began is professorship at Georgia Tech in 1996.
His love of math and his work in the field has awarded him many accolades: a Guggenheim Fellowship, a fellow of the American Mathematical Society, and as an inclusive name in the Mathematics Genealogy Project, Salem Prize, and the Simons Fellow Award.
Dr. Lacey is the author of many acclaimed national and international publications, awarded academia and individual grants and funding, and as a key speaker at global academic colloquiums.
Michael T. Lacey is prominently known as an outstanding mentor to graduates and postdoctoral scholars who under his leadership have achieved much in the academic and industry fields, like his 2008 Georgia Tech NSF-ADVANCE (for promoting women in science and engineering).
