Michael Lacey an American Mathematician

Michael Thoreau Laceyis an American mathematician born in 26th September, 1959. He is a PhD holder from the renowned University of Illinois. His proposal then was in the range of probability in Banach spaces. This proposal tackled a challenged link to a law of the iterated logarithm in the empirical characteristic functions.

Michael’s great works in the field of Mathematics has touched on the following parts: –

 Probability

 ergodic theory

 harmonic analysis


He has served in postdoctoral positions at the University of Louisiana State and the University of North Carolina. Michael Lacey’s research work has been renowned by many awards like the Guggenheim and the Simons Foundations.

He has also served as the director of training grants like MCTP awards from the NSF and VIGRE. These grants have supported several scholars. He has advised and mentored many scholars who in turn went on to lead graduate programs. Read more: Michael Lacey | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey | Mathalliance

While at Indiana University, Michael received a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship. During his time at Indiana University, he started a training of the bilinear Hilbert transform which was at that time the subject of a conjecture carried out by Alberto Calderon.

In the same year, 1996,Lacey became one of the Professors of Mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology. In the year 2004, Michael was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowshipfor his work with Xiaochun Li.

Michael Lacey has several honors through his career in Mathematics. Among them are:-

 American Mathematical Society Fellow (2013)

 Simons Fellow (2012)

 Fulbright Fellowship, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2008)

 Guggenheim Fellow (2004)

 NSF Postdoctoral Fellow (1990)

 45 Minute address, International Congress of Mathematicians, Berlin Germany (1998)

 Awarded Prix Salem, jointly with Christoph Thiele. (1997)

Michael Lacey has continued to build the Mathematics genre by empowering students and instructors through talks and mentorship programs.

He is viewed as an icon by many in his field of Pure Mathematics having been a member of the American Mathematical Society from 2012.
