Many mathematicians are not popular, but their contribution in adding mathematical knowledge is immense. Michael Lacey; a professor of mathematics at Georgia State University is one of the many mathematicians in the world.
Michael Lacey was born in 1959, and he has grown with love and passion for mathematics. He has contributed a lot of knowledge to the field math, and his hard work and determination are evident.
Michael Lacey attained his Ph.D. At the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign way back in 1987. Before then he had achieved a bachelor’s degree in 1981 from the University of Texas. After his education, he joined the field of academic where he started as an assistant professor at Louisiana State University.
Lacey worked at the University of North California and Indiana University, both as an assistant professor. Later in 1996, Lacey became an associate professor without tenure at Georgia State University. It took him two years to be granted a tenure and he became a full professor in mathematics at the same university.
Michael Lacey has solved very many mathematical problems. One of them is that he used probability theory to explain a random walk. Lacey focused on the magnitude of fluctuation when on is walking, and this is employed in empirical characteristics. Read more; Michael Lacey | Facebook and Michael Lacey | About.me
This law is referred to as the law of iterated algorithm. Later in his career, Professor Lacey focused more on harmonic analysis which he loved most.
Professor Lacey together with his instructor; Walter Phillip developed a mathematical theorem used mainly in probabilities. With his determination and hard work, Lacey studied bilinear Hilbert transform. This study was not proven, and in 1996, Lacey and his friend Thiele solved the problem. This is one of his greatest achievement in the field of mathematics.
Michael Lacy has received many awards. Lacey and Thiele won Salem Prize for their efforts and contribution in solving bilinear Hilbert transform study. He was honored by Georgia State University in 2012 for being a good mentor, and he was awarded the NSF-Advanced Mentoring award. Lacey was also given a chance to talk to all mathematicians from all over the world in a congress held in Berlin in 1998.
Being a mathematician is not easy as it requires great hard work and patience. Therefore, Michael Lacey should be honored and respected for his achievement.
Lacey is still engaged in research, and mentoring students is one of the things he likes most. With great love for mathematics, Lacey has achieved a lot, and his knowledge is very helpful in mathematics.
