Michael is a great mathematician who has earned great respect from all quarters. He attained a doctorate in 1987 from the University of Illinois. He wrote his thesis in probability in Banach spaces while at the university and was working under Walter Philip’s direction.
Micheal worked out a complex topic that involved the empirical characteristic function of iterated logarithm law. Micheal has also managed to come up with ground-breaking work on probability, ergodic theory, and harmonic analysis.
Michael Lacey got hired at the Louisiana State University after earning his Ph.D. He after that relocated to the Chapel Hill Campus of the University of Carolina. Walter Phillip and Lacey presented a proof related to the theory on almost sure central limit which earned them a great deal of attention at UNC-Chapel Hill. Michael Lacey went on to work at Indiana University from 1989 to 1996. He was handed a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship while at Indiana University.
While at the fellowship, Michael learned the bilinear Hilbert transform. The transform had long been a subject of question by Alberto Calderon. After solving the transform in 1996, Christoph Thiele and Lacey won the Salem Prize.
Since 1996, Michael Lacey has been a mathematics professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology. In 2004, Michael obtained a Guggenheim Fellowship for the joint work he did with Xiaochun Li. In 2012 Lacey joined the American Mathematical Society.
The National Science Foundation has provided Michael support in the various researches he has done in mathematics. Several other foundations which have also provided support for Lacey work include Fulbright Foundation and the Simmons Foundation. Several papers on the critical issues in science and mathematics have been published.
Micheal has researched and written on numerous topics during his career some of them including Levy processes and Laws of the iterated logarithm, the Carleson–Hunt Theorem, Carleson’s Theorem, Bilinear Littlewood Paley Square Functions, the Kao Problem, dynamical systems, Ergodic Theory, central limit theorems, and the bilinear Hilbert transform.
Michael Lacey has throughout his celebrated career demonstrated a deep apprehension of some of the most difficult contemporary mathematical problems.
