Michael Thoreau Lacey, the 57-year-old professor, is a renowned American mathematician who specializes in Calculus at the University of Georgia Institute of Technology.
During his tenure, he unraveled a common problem in Mathematics that gained him fame. The problem was connected to a law of the iterated logarithm for the empirical functions. Learn more about Michael Lacey: https://arxiv.org/a/lacey_m_1.html
This unravel was the first of many that he did during his early years as a professor. Later in life, he conducted a research that was related to probability and harmonic analysis. Surprisingly, this ended up being his area of interest till date.
Short Biography of Michael Thoreau Lacey
Michael Lacey was born on the 26th September, 1959. In 1981, he earned his first degree at the University of Texas and he later on received his Ph.D in 1987 from the University of Illinois.
His thesis on probability in Banach spaces was probably what led him to pursue his interests in Math. Later on he pursued studies at the University of North Carolina and Louisiana State University where he held his first doctorate position.

In 1987, he become an Associate Professor of Mathematics at several universities. Some of these universities include:
– Baton Rouge
– Chapel Hill
– And the Georgia Institute of Technology
Few years later, Michael got a job at the Indiana University where he worked as a Lecturer. During his time in Indiana University, he received a National Science Foundation Fellowship. That inspired him to study more and this time he began to study bilinear Hilbert Transform.
Later in 1996, Lacey and Thiele partnered to solve the Hilbert transform. At that time, the Hilbert Transform was a subject of conjecture by Alberto Calderon. Lacey and Thiele were awarded the Salem Prize for their effort in solving.
Between 1990 and 2013, Lacey has received several awards. These awards include; the NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in 1990, Guggenheim Fellow in 2004, the Simons Fellow in 2012 and the Society Fellow in the year 2013.
Michael Lacey continues to make great strides in the discipline as a Lecturer in several universities. His zeal for Mathematics continues to burn till date. In
