Meet Michael Lacey, an icon in Mathematics from America. He was born back in 1959 on 26th of October. In 1987 he got his Ph.D. at the University of Illinois which is in Urbana-Champaign. Lacey undertook a thesis in the field of probability, explicitly dealing with Banach Spaces.

In the hypothesis, he managed to tackle a problem associated with the law of interrelated logarithm. In intervening years, his primary focus has been on areas such as ergodic theory; he has also been tackling probability and outstandingly harmonic analysis.

Lacey received postdoctoral positions at the University of North Carolina and also from Louisiana State University. Walter Philip, Lacey’s director at his doctorate-level, joined Lacey and the two presented their proof of a Central limit theorem.

It happened when Lacey was at the University of North Carolina. From the year 1989 to 1996, Lacey was working at Indiana University. In this university, he got Postdoctoral Fellowship on National Science Foundation.

Later on, interest grew in Michael Lacey to begin learning about bilinear Hilbert transform. By this period, this type of transform had not been proven. Together with Christoph Thiele, Michael Lacey managed to solve the conjecture and got an awarded the Salem Prize.

Lacey has been going up in his unmatched intelligence in mathematics one thing that made him be a mathematics Professor in Georgia Institute of Technology since 1996. Lacey got a Guggenheim Fellowship in the year 2004.

The fellowship entailed cooperative working with Xiaochun Li and later in 2012, and Lacey won a position in being among the American Mathematical Society.

Some outstanding characters about Lacey that he points out is that every mathematician hates a group work. He adds that maths is a subject that the solvers enjoy working all alone unlike in other specializations. His work has brought him much recognition the world over.
