Amazing Mathematician; Michael Lacey

Born in 1956, Michael Lacey is an American mathematician with a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 1987. Michael got his Bachelor of Science degree in 1981 from the University of Texas, Austin.

Under the direction of Walter Philipp. Michael Lacey did a thesis on probability in Banach Spaces. The thesis helped solve problems related to empirical characteristics functions and the law of iterated characteristics functions.

Michael Lacey has an extensive resume that dates back decades. Michael Lacey started his postdoctoral career as a professor at the Louisiana State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

While at the University of North Carolina, Michael and Walter Philipp worked on a thesis that proved the central limit theorem. From 1989 and 1996, Michael lectured at the Indiana University. Whilst at the Indiana University, Michael received a postdoctoral fellowship from the National Science Foundation.

During the tenure of this fellowship, Michael Lacey and Christoph Thiele solved the Bilinear Hilbert Transform for which they were awarded The Prix Salem Prize, jointly funded by Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study, in 1997. Read more: Michael Lacey | Wikipedia
