Michael Lacey is an American mathematician who was born in September of 1959. He attained his PHD in 1987 from the University of Illinois at Urbanna Champaign. The focal point of Michael’s thesis was logarithm and empirical characteristic functions. Proceeding his university studies in Illinois, Lacey would focus his time and research on harmonic analysis and probability. Louisiana State University provided him with his first post doctoral role.
He would eventually move on to the University of North Carolina where he would pair up with Walter Phillip. Michael Lacey was mentored by Walter during his PHD studies.

These two would now gain evidence and propose the central limit theory. His progressive mentality carried him on to Indiana University which is where he received National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship.
His proceeding works would earn him the Salem Prize for his research on Bilinear Hilbert Transform. This project was a collaborative effort with Christopher Thiele. In 2012 Michael Lacey was the newest member of the American Mathematical Society.
He joined mathematician peers who are motivated by the progressive math studies as well as scholarships. Lacey is presently a Georgia Tech professor where he mentors students in the doctoral program.
He also offers his guidance to those in pre doctoral studies. He leaves his line of communication available for those looking for mentorship. The pride he takes in what he does sets him apart from others. The ambition of Michael Lacey carries over inside the lecture halls and outside of the university.
