Michael Lacey is a well know American mathematician. He is famous for his mathematical thesis in the area of probability in branch space. Michael was born on September 26, 1959. He pursued his Ph.D. in the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign.
In his years of study, he continuously touched in the field of probability ergodic theory, probability and most importantly in harmonic analysis. He also succeeded in solving problems relating to the law of iterated logarithm for characteristic empirical functions.
It is in the University of North Carolina (UNC) and Louisiana State University where he first had his first postdoctoral position. When still in the UNC, Michael and his colleague, Walter Philips presented prove on the almost sure central limit theorem. Learn more about Michael Lacey: https://arxiv.org/a/lacey_m_1.html
In 1989 to 1996, he held office at Indiana University. When he was there, he started studying on the bilinear Hilbert transformation.
He was also given a National science foundation postdoctoral fellowship. In 1996, Michael together with Christophe There solved the problem of Conjecture by Alberto Calderon, which saw them win the Salem Prize.
In 1996, Michael joined the Georgia Institute of Technology where he was actively involved in different tasks within and outside the institution. During this tenure, he received several awards such as Guggenheim and Simons foundations.
He has supported many students with training grants such as vertical integration of education research (VIGRE) and math scholars program (MCTP). He has also mentored many postgraduate students who have gone ahead academic, and others got involved in various industries. Lacey has also mentored at least ten postdocs.
In 2002, he joined XIanchun li where he became a member of American Mathematical Society. It won’t go without mentioning that Michael Lacey played important roles in mathematics
