Michael Lacey is a recognized mathematician who has done several types of research and won many awards. An example of the awards is the Simons Foundation and the Guggenheim. Lacey joined Georgia Institute of Technology in 1996. He has been a director of various training grants like the VIRGE and MCTP from the NSF. The above grants support many undergraduate student and postdocs. Lacey has counseled some undergraduates into correct and fruitful graduate programs. His students in the Ph.D. level have achieved so well and now lead in academic and industrial sectors. Michael Lacey boasts in mentoring over ten postdocs. He has broad experience in pure mathematics and his research interests are based on harmonic analysis and probability. Lacey is a loved mentor by doctorate and pre-doctoral students who emerge very successful through his hands. Many pass gratitude for helping them, guiding them, even with motivations and various recommendations in their course line, which has allowed them to achieve different awards.
Lacey was born in 1959, now an American mathematician. He received a Ph.D. from University of Illinois in 1987 at the Urbana-Campaign under Walter Philip direction. Lacey’s thesis stood out from any other based on probability in Banach Spaces where he attended to solve an issue relating to the law of the iterated logarithm of characteristic empirical functions. Throughout his career life, Michael Lacey has touched many lives academically in the areas of ergodic theory, probability, and harmonic analysis. Following his career, the first postdoctoral post he ever held was at Louisiana State University and University of North Carolina at the Chapel Hill. Between 1989 and 1996, Lacey served at Indiana University and at the same time received a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellowship. It is during that fellowship period that he began to study bilinear Hilbert transform. After solving this, they received an award of Salem Prize. Since 1996, Michael Lacey has lectured and directed students in mathematics faculty at the Georgia Institute of technology. In 2012, Lacey became a fellow of American Mathematical Society. The faculty of mathematics at the university is dedicated and moved by the mission to build a new American community in statistical and mathematical sciences.
