The career life of a world-class mathematician Michael Lacey

Michael Lacey is an American mathematician who was born on 26th September 1959. In 1987 he was awarded his Ph.D. under the supervision of Walter Phillip. This P.h. D was from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

In his dissertation in the field of probability in Banach spaces, Michael worked out an issue that is linked to the law of iterated logarithm for empirical characteristics.

When he finished his P.h.D, Lacey also enrolled for postdoctoral positions. Some of those posts were at the Louisiana State Universality and the University of North Carolina. At the latter institution, Michael together with Phillip proved the central limit theorem. From 1989 to 1996, Michael served at the Indiana University.

As he worked there, he received a Postdoctoral Fellowship from National Science Foundation. During that period, Michael also studied the bilinear transform of Hibert. In 1996, Lacey together with Christoph Thiele tackled the topic of conjecture. Coincidently, the binear Hibert transform which he had previously, studied was also on the subject. The two got an award for the Salem Prize.

Michael has been a mathematics professor since 1996 at Georgia Institute of Technology. As a professor of mathematics, he has got Guggenheim Fellowship for working in unity with Xiaochum. He has also been a fellow of the American Mathematics Society since the year 2012.

Due to his vast expertise in Mathematics, Michael has been the director of training grants such as MCTP and VIGRE. Though his leadership, these awards have assisted many graduates, undergraduates students and postdoctoral.

He has also mentored numerous undergraduate students who have managed to lead in many graduates programs. Additionally, his Ph.D. students are performing well in the jobs industry and still in the academics. Michael has over ten postdocs that he has mentored.

Currently, most of his students are thanking him for the guidance, assistance, and inspiration he gave them and the sound recommendations that he writes for them. As a lecturer, Michael would create a good foundation for his students such that they would later handle the proceeding courses with confidence.

One of his students recalls how he prepared them for calculus two while still doing one. This made them more confident.
