Born in 1959, Michael Thoreau Lacey is a Mathematician from the US. He attended the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign where he acquired his PhD in 1987. Michael studied at the university during the time of Walter Philipp as the director.
The thesis of Michael touched in the probability area in Banach spaces where he managed to solve a problem that was related to the iterated logarithm law for the empirical characteristic functions. Over the years, Michael Lacey’s work has been in the areas of ergodic theory, probability and also harmonic analysis.
After acquiring his PhD, Michael first worked at the Louisiana State University after which he went on to serve at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. It was at the University of North Carolina that Michael and Walter Philip demonstrated the proof about the central limit theorem.
The period from 1989 to 1996, Michael lacey served at the Indiana University where he managed to receive a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship. Michael also started study about the Hilbert transform bilinear at the tenure of the postdoctoral fellowship. Read more: Michael Lacey | LinkedIn
In 19996, Michael and Christoph Thiele solved the conjecture subject by Alberto Calderon and were awarded with the Salem Prize for this success.
Michael Lacey became the Professor of mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology in 1996. He got the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2004 for the joint work he did with Xiaochun Li. Michael lacey became an American Mathematics Society member in 2012. He was once a lecture at the University of Arkansas where he taught the subject of Mathematics.
A researcher of mathematics, Michael has written many papers, most of which are sponsored by National Science Foundation. He has acquired a reputation as a hard working and reliable mathematician. His works are also recognized the world over and is termed as one of the greatest mathematicians of his time.
Michael Lacey always had a passion for mathematics since he was young. He worked hard to achieve his goal of becoming a great mathematician. Michael serves as a mentor to young and upcoming mathematicians. He attributes his success to discipline, commitment and above all passion.
