When it comes to Michael Lacey tons of individuals know him as being an American mathematician. Lacey began his career as soon as he could and received his Ph.D. in 1987 when he attended the University of Illinois. During the time that Lacey obtained his Ph.D., he was directly within the directions of none other than, Walter Philipp.
Lacey’s first theory happened to touch on being within the areas of probability, harmonic analysis and also an ergodic theory. His first theory happened to have also been achieved within his intervening years. He was given the opportunity at the Louisiana State University to hold his first postdoctoral position.

It was from 1989 until 1996 that Lacey proudly worked at Indiana University and was able to learn a lot from his position that he held there. Also during his time at Indiana University Lacey proudly was able to receive the National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship. It was during this same time that he decided to start his study on the bilinear Hilbert transform.
During this time this transform happened to be part of a conjecture that was by Alberto Calderon and happened to be solved in 1996 by Lacey and Christoph Thiele, for having solved the conjecture the two men were proudly awarded the Salem Prize.
It has been since 1996 that Lacey held a working position at the Georgia Institute of Technology as being their Professor of Mathematics. It was then in 2004 that Lacey received what is the Guggenheim Fellowship, for the joint work that he did with Xiaochun Li. Then in 2012 Lacey proudly became known as being a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.
Lacey’s work has been recognized all over and has been able to receive multiple awards. A few of these awards happen to include the Guggenheim and also the Simons Foundation award. Both of these awards Lacey to this day is extremely proud of being able to have been able to of obtained.
Along with Lacey’s many other roles and positions that he holds he has also held a position as being the director of training grants. This position he held was designed to be able to help and support many different postdocs, undergraduates and also graduate students.
This is another one of Lacey’s positions that he was very passionate about and always kept him extremely motivated to do the best that he possibly could do for all of his students.
