Micheal Lacey, an American mathematician, has an enormous list of accomplishments to his name. A master of several different fields of mathematics, Lacey has studied a wide assortment of subsets of the field. Here are just a few examples of the extensive list of Lacey’s conquests: Banach Spaces, Laws of the Iterated Logarithm for Empirical Characteristic Functions, probability, Ergodic Theory, and Harmonic Functions.
Each of these are difficult undertakings in their own right, though Harmonic analysis takes the cake; It is a notoriously difficult often avoided for its intangibility.
This fact wasn’t enough to deter Lacey though, who mastered the area of study almost effortlessly. Lacey has built up a wealth of knowledge in an impressively short amount of time, having begun working as a professional in 1996. Lacey’s work as a mathematician has had an enormous impact on the field. Read more: Michael Lacey | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey |Math Alliance
Lacey has the additional distinction of having taken part of a large number of research efforts. Over the course of his career, Lacey has played an integral role in many groundbreaking studies. During his first postdoctoral position at Louisiana State University, Lacey headed a research effort regarding the Central Limit Theorem.

The effort was a success and lent itself nicely to Lacey’s growing list of accomplishments. Next, at Indiana University, Lacey was awarded an extremely coveted scholarship: one awarded by the National Science Foundation.
Using these newly acquired funds, Lacey headed a research effort to uncover more about the Hilbert transform, an elusive area of study. Lacey and his team cracked the Hilbert Transform wide open, yielding invaluable data for mathematics as a field and a fresh new feather for Lacey’s crowded cap.
For his efforts, Lacey has received many different accolades. Most recently, Lacey was awarded a position as a professor of Mathematics at the prestigious Georgia Institute of Technology, a position he is currently holding. In this position, Lacey strives to cultivate a passionate next generation of mathematicians.
Lacey was also awarded a Salem Prize for his research into the Hilbert Transform. Lastly, Lacey is one of the few to consider himself a fellow of the American Mathematical Institute.
