Today, Lacey specializes in harmonic analysis, probability and erogadic theory. Harmonic analysis has to do with studying waves, such as sound waves. Erogadic theory has to do with studying dynamic systems related somewhat to statistical physics.

After earning his doctorate, Lacey held positions at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Louisiana State University. While at the former, he and his doctoral supervisor, Walter Philipp solved the central limit theorem to an almost certainty. The central limit theorem basically calcluates averages-such as bell curves-by adding random independent variables.

Michael Lacey also held a position at Indiana University for six years (1989-1996). While there, he received the National Science Postdoctoral Fellowship and also the Salem Prize for his assistance in solving the Hilbert Transform in 1996.

Since 1996, he has been teaching at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He has since received the Guggenheim Fellowship and the fellowship with the American Mathematical Society. He has since received numerous other awards and fellowships. He serves as director of various training grants, which have gone to dozens of students from undergraduates to postdocs.

He has advised all levels of students and at least 10 of his doctoral students have gone on to hold careers in industry and academic areas. He mainly mentors doctoral and postdoc students.
