Speech in the Ceremony for Da Ruan at Vito Conference Hall, Mol, Belgium, 6 Aug. 2011

  • Etienne Kerre


I met Da for the first time about 25 years ago when he joined my research group on Fuzziness and Uncertainty Modelling at Ghent university. That time every year China selected two excellent master students to go abroad in the framework of a bilateral cooperation between China and Belgium to work towards a PhD degree. From the very beginning of our cooperation I was very touched by his competence and hard working to tackle completely new issues in the recently developed mathematics of fuzziness. Da obtained his PhD in mathematics from Ghent University in 1990. After obtaining his PhD he could get a post-doc position at the Center for Nuclear Research in Mol, where he started his very successful career as a researcher combining theoretical as well as applied contributions and especially as the project leader of his scientific child called FLINS (an acronym for Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent technologies in Nuclear Science). Indeed unbelievable successful!
