This man, Michael Lacey

Michael Lacey is an English mathematician, who is known for His thesis work in Probability, while at Banach Spaces. He was involved in finding a solution for law of the iterated logarithm Ergodic theory, and Harmonic Analysis are some of his contributions in the field of mathematics

He was born on September 26th, 1959 and received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois, which was under the directorship of Walter Philip in the year 1987. Learn more about Michael Lacey: https://twitter.com/Michael_Lacey1

He was posted in Louisiana University after acquiring his doctorate and later at the University of North Carolina where together with Walter Philip, they discovered the Central Limit Theorem.

He received an award called The Salem Prize together with Christoph Thiele after their contribution to Hilbert Transform discipline in 1996. He also got another award Georgia Tech NSF-ADVANCE Mentoring Award among many others.

  • Fellowship

He is a member of both Guggenheim Fellowship (2004), American Mathematical Society (2012), Simons, Fulbright, and Nsf Post-Doctoral.

  • Mentorship

Michael lectures at Georgia Institute of Technology. He has mentored many undergraduates, and about 40% attend STEM graduate program. One of his mentees, an NSF Graduate Research fellowship, dedicated their award to him because of his advice and encouragement. He acknowledged his recommendations for him and said he would not have achieved that much without his help.

  • Publications

Michael has many publications to his name. Some of these are; Two Weight Inequality for the Hilbert Transform, Pointwise convergence of vector-valued Fourier series, Inequality for Haar shift operators, and the small ball inequality in all dimensions with all the revised copies to mention but a few.

Michael Lacey’s spoke for 45 minutes in the International Congress of Mathematicians, Berlin Germany. His efforts towards developing the field of math are to be appreciated.
