Michael Lacey, the mathematical Guru

Michael Lacey is considered as among the greatest mathematicians of all times. Born in 1959, Lacey has made impressive contributions to mathematics. His main contributions in Mathematics are in the probability division.

Lacey attended the University of Texas Austin where he majored in Mathematics graduating in with a BS. Degree. Michael attended the University of Illinois where he attained his PhD in 1987. It is at the universities while completing his PhD thesis that he was involved in numerous projects that involved probability. When completing his PhD thesis, Mr Walter Philip was his professor and mentor.

Together with Walter Philip, Lacey developed a formula which solved a mathematical problem which troubles most scholars when he presented his thesis. He developed the Law of Iterated Logarithm, but his thesis was on empirical characteristic functions.

After he graduated, Lacey served at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Other universities he has worked at include the Louisiana State University and Indiana University. While at the University of North Carolina, Michael was involved in a lot of research projects which eventually led to the proof of the Central Limit Theorem.

Michael Lacey worked at the Indiana University between 1989 and 1996 where he studied the Bilinear Hilbert Transform. His research at the Indiana University was sponsored by the National Science Foundation that had awarded him a postdoctoral fellowship.

He had been selected because of his previous achievements in mathematics. It was therefore not a surprise when he was considered to work on the Hilbert Transform challenge.

Currently, Michael Lacey serves as a professor of mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology where he has been working since 1996. At Georgia Institute of Technology, he has received several awards for his contributions to the field of mathematics including Guggenheim Fellowship. He has also been honoured for his efforts to mentor other leading assistant professors. To this end, he received the Georgia Tech NSF-ADVANCE Mentoring Award in 2012.
