Dear Management Board of Professor Kuo Jing Bing Scholarship
My name is Anh Tuan Nguyen, a Vietnamese student, and I am the 2016 recipient of the Professor Kuo Jing Bing Scholarship. I am very honored to receive this scholarship and grateful for the opportunities it will provide me.
I am currently is a Ph.D. student of Applied Mathematics Department. I finished all the required courses with 27 credits and passed the qualifying exams. In 2009, Vietnam planned to build up two nuclear power plants so I have been doing my research about the safety of a nuclear power plant to contribute to the development of energy in Vietnam in the future. In my study, I consider the effect of different crack types to probabilistic fracture mechanics of reactor pressure vessel under pressurized thermal shock transient. With the help from my advisors, professor Kuen Tsan Chen, professor Kuen Ting, and classmates, I got some good results and join ASINCO 10th (The Asian Society for Integrity of Nuclear Components) conference in Korea, Busan, 2014.
The Professor Kuo Jing Bing Scholarship lighten financial burden and allow me to focus more in my research and complete my degree. I look forward to being able to take part into the development of energy in Vietnam, and to giving back Taiwan by strengthening the relationship between Taiwan and Vietnam not only in science but also in other fields.
Thank you, again, for giving me this opportunity and other students.
