Michael Lacey was born on 26th September 1959 and is renowned for his contribution to the mathematics world making him the most celebrated mathematician. He attended Illinois University in 1987 and attained his Ph.D. in mathematics. At the university, he got involved in various projects including the study of probability. He also got involved with Walter Philip, his mentor, and supervisor. They both came up with a unique formula that works out on mathematical problems troubling students during the probability thesis presentation.
The formula dealt with Law of the Iterated Logarithm while the thesis revolved around matters concerning the characteristic empirical functions. Lacey had immense interest in probability which saw him concentrate on understanding the subject better and other divisions of mathematics. After graduating, he started working at Chapel Hill North Carolina University and later at Louisiana State University where he served as a mathematical lecturer. During his teaching years, Chapel Hill Michael Lacey conducted numerous researchers that saw him give proof to the Theorem of Central Limit. He later went to Indiana University from 1989 to 1996 and studied on Bilinear Hilbert Transform. Michael joined the institution through the sponsorship of National Science Foundation, where he received the postdoctoral fellowship. With his dedication and achievement in mathematics world, Michael has managed to solve various problems like the Hilbert Transform that was introduced by Alberto Calderon earning him the Salem Prize.
Currently, Michael Lacey is a mathematics professor at Georgia Institute of Technology a position he has held since 1996 making the institute grow in several strides. At the institute, Lacey receiving Guggenheim Fellowship after joined hands and working with Xiaochun Li. In 2012, Michael Lacey received a fellowship that allowed him to become part of the American Mathematical Society. A society that brings together mathematical experts with a common interest in supporting research and offering education grants to upcoming mathematicians.
Michael has worked with different people globally who testifies to his ability to solve various mathematical problems and his excellent knowledge on the subject. He also contributes positively to international and national communities on mathematics matters through the American Mathematical Society channels, meetings, and publications.
