Michael Lacey has built a legacy for himself over the years as an American mathematician. He took up the direction of mathematics in his career right from when he was in school. The most recent educational achievement he has had is the Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. For his thesis, he solved an actual problem which had been existing in the field of mathematics. It was in the field of probability in Banach Spaces.

He has been working ever since and has gained a lot of experience. He has researched in the fields of probability, ergodic theories, and harmonic analysis.
Apart from his actual contributions in the field of mathematics, more specifically in the field of research, Michael Lacey is also enthusiastic about ensuring that the generation being created is also elite in the field of mathematics. In line with this, he is a mentor for students most especially those who are doctoral or pre-doctoral students in the field of mathematics.
The Georgia Institute of Technology has benefitted from his expertise since the year 1996. In this institute, he has been able to interact with students, from the lowest up to even the highest levels. Most of the undergraduates who were under his mentorship went on to pursue graduate courses in the same field. This is mostly because he concentrates more on building the passion within these students. Read more: Michael Lacey | GAtech and Michael Lacey | Wikipedia
The passion he transmits to those he mentors is usually so evident. Currently, for instance, more than 10 post-graduates he has mentored have gone on to become career people in the field of mathematics. They have landed industry jobs as well as academic jobs.
Since Michael joined the Georgia Institute of technology, he has continued carrying out research relevant to the area of mathematics. His research has been fruitful to the extent of his research findings being recognized and rewarded in awards such as the Guggenheim and the Simons Foundations awards.
He continues to be consistent in the research he is carrying out. He has concentrated on the areas of probability and harmonic analysis. His contributions in these fields are already sizeable but he still looks forward to simplifying these fields further.
