Meet Michael Lacey, the mathematical genius

Meet Michael Lacey, an American mathematician genius born in the year 1959. Michael Lacey earned his Ph.D. in the year 1987 from the University of Illinois based in Urbana-Champaign. Michael Lacey was a student of Walter Philipp.

In his doctorate thesis, Michael Lacey-based his research on probability under Banach spaces, which is a mathematical function of analysis which is regarded as the complete normed vector space. This functional analysis was named after the Stefan Banach, a famous Polish mathematician. Stefan introduced the concept was under study between the year 1920 and 1922.

Michael Lacey also solved several mathematical problems including the law of the iterated logarithm (used in probability theory in explaining the magnitude of fluctuations of a random walk) for use in empirical characteristics functions.

Later in his career, he focused his studies and teachings on ergodic theory, probability and harmonic analysis which was his personal best.

After receiving his doctorate, Michael Lacey joined the University of North Carolina based in Chapel Hill and the Louisiana State University.

During his time the University of North Carolina, Michael Lacey, and his instructor Walter Philipp solved a mathematical that proved an almost perfect central limit theorem. The mathematical theorem is mostly used when performing probabilities.

From the year 1989 to 1996, Michael Lacey was serving at Indiana University where he received a postdoctoral fellowship from the National Science Foundation, a United States government-owned firm that supports non-medical scientists and education which include fields in mathematics, economics, social sciences, and computer science.

He also took time to study more about bilinear Hilbert transform which was unproven study by Alberto Calderon, an Argentinean mathematician but Michael Lacey and his friend Christoph Thiele has solved in back in the year1996.

They were awarded the Salem Prize for their contribution. The Salem prize is given out annually to every emerging mathematician who showed outstanding work in Fourier series. It was started by Raphael Salem in respect of her late husband.

Since then, Michael Lacey has been working at the Georgia Institute of Technology as the professor of Mathematics. In 2004, Michael Lacey received Guggenheim Fellowship with his fellow mathematician Xiaochun Li. The grant is given to creative and hardworking groups, especially in arts.

In the year 2012, Lacey joined American Mathematical Society as a fellow. AMS is dedicated association of mathematical experts with common interests in offering education grants and supporting research in mathematics. They also contribute to both national and international communities through their publications, meetings, and other channels.
