Michael Lacey

Michael Lacey was born on September 26th, 1959. He is a mathematician from the United States of America. In 1987, he received his P.h.D after attending the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Lacey’s thesis had to do with Banach Spaces—an area of probability. Throughout the years, his work had to do with topics such as ergodic theory, harmonic analysis and probability.
At the University of Carolina at Chapel Hill and Louisiana State University, he worked in his first postdoctoral positions. He worked alongside the man who he earned his P.h.D. under—Walter Philipp. At Indiana State University, he had a position from 1989 to 1996.  Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: and

During his years at Indiana State University, Walter Philipp was given a National Science Foundation Post Doctoral Fellowship. In the years when he was under the tenure of the fellowship, he studied Hilbert transform. In 1996, Michael Lacey and Christoph Thiele won the Salem prize for solving a conjecture made by Alberto Calderon.

Michael Lacey has been working as a math professor at The Georgia Institute of Technology since 1996. After doing work with Xiaochun Li, he received a Guggenheim fellowship in 2004. He became a member of the American Mathematical Society in 2012.

He has directed a number of training grants that have helped dozens of students in various levels of college. Graduate students, undergraduate students and post-docs have been helped by his guidance and support.

Michael Lacey has been consistently working on academic papers for years. Some of his papers include “The Solution of the Kato Problem in the Case of the Gaussian Heat Kernal Bounds,” “LP Bounds for the Bilinear Hilbert Transform,” “Limit Laws for Local Times of a Brownian Sheet,” “A Not on the Almost Sure Central Limit Theorem” and “Weak Convergence in Dynamical Systems to Self Similar Processes With Time Average Representation.”
