Michael Lacey

Born on September 26, 1959. Michael Lacey a renowned mathematician who during his time at the University of Illinois, received his PhD and became his work on mathematical theories, while also entering under the mentor-ship of Walter Phillipp.

Together they worked and Created his thesis which focused on the probability in relation to Banach Spaces. He is also well known as being the man who solved an issue involving the law of the empirical characteristic functions and the iterated logarithm law that surrounds it.

His work is also known to have been focused on probability, ergodic theory, and one of his most important works harmonic analysis. He has published at least fifty papers concerning his research. Which have been backed and supported by the National Science Foundation. Along with, Salem Prize, Guggenheim Foundation, the Fulbright Foundation, and several others.

Louisiana State University is where he first gained experience in postdoctoral positions. He also gained this experience, during the time he spent in the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. It was there while he was attending UNC, that Lacey and his mentor Walter Phillipp provided there proof of an almost sure theorem for Central Limit.

From 1989 to 1996, Mike held a position in Indiana University. It is there during those years of attending that University, that his work was recognized by National Science Foundation and received a award for his work.

He also started his tenure during his time there, where he also started a study on the bi-linear Hilbert Transform. The transform quickly became the subject of focus and conjecture by the renowned Argentinian mathematician, Alberto Calderon.

This lead to Lacey and another mathematician he was working closely with, known as Christopher Thiele. A conjecture that they solved in 1996, and lead to them being awarded by the Salem Prize, a foundation that awards young Mathematician’s every year for their outstanding work and research.

Since being awarded by them, Lacey spent some time being a Mathematics Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology. He spent some time working closely Xiaochun Li, and was rewarded for that research by the Guggenheim Fellowship, he also joined the American Mathematical Society in 2012 and became a fellow.
