Meet the Creamiest Mathematician Genius in History Michael Lacey

Time is like a wheel rolling from year to another leaving back some treads we call history. Over the history, the time has produced various legends you have been known for the great blueprints they have left in various fields for the future generations. One of the heroic geniuses in mathematics who has left a legacy and unsolved riddle for his generation is Michael Lacey. He has left many scratching their heads with his many formulas he came up with and always wondering how he thought of such a thing anyway.

Well, Michael Lacey dates back in September 1959 when he announced his arrival on the face of the earth where he would later leave a great history because of his numerous contributions in Mathematics. Michael joined University of Illinois and later received Ph.D. in 1987. In his studies, he was involved in probability studies and other projects. During his thesis presentation, he presented one of the major discoveries in the mathematics history which related to Law of Iterated Logarithm formulas. His supervisor Walter Philip was a great help in enabling him to come up with this formula.

Michael Lacey later joined the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for his postdoctoral studies. While still in this institution, and with the help of his supervisor, they come up with a proof of the Central Limit Theorem after a series of research. He has also served at Louisiana State University and later served at Indiana University from1989 to 1996 where he got more knowledge on Bilinear Hilbert Transform. After solving this Hilbert Transform he was awarded Salem Prize.

In 1996, the indomitable Michael joined Georgia Institute of Technology where he became the Professor of Mathematics. He has been consistent in his research and this has earned him several awards like Guggenheim and also Simons Foundations. He has been serving in various training grants like MCTP and VIGRE as the Director which has seen many graduates successful. He has mentored Doctoral and Pre-doctoral students. He served in American Mathematical Society as a Partner. His research interests are in Harmonic Analysis and Probability and his field of expertise is pure mathematics.
