Michael Eugene Taylor (born 1946) is an American mathematician, working in partial differential equations.

Taylor obtained his bachelor's degree from Princeton University in 1967, and completed his Ph.D. under the supervision of Heinz Otto Cordes at the University of California, Berkeley (Hypoelliptic Differential Equations).[1] He held a professorship at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and is now the William R. Kenan Professor of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina.

In 1986 he was awarded the Lester Randolph Ford Award.[2][3]

He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 1990 he was invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Kyoto (Microlocal analysis in spectral and scattering theory and index theory). He is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[4]

He is married to mathematician Jane M. Hawkins.
