Prof. Laszlo Bela Kish Received the Gdańsk University of Technology Medal for Merit

  • World famous stochastic fluctuations specialist Prof. Laszlo Bela Kish received the medal for merit from the Gdańsk University of Technology rector Prof. Jacek Namieśnik. The scientist closely cooperates with our university, giving lectures for Ph.D. students at the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics.


    "I find working with the GUT Ph.D. students very satisfactory. I will gladly supervise these who decide to visit my university for a foreign exchange", said the professor accepting his award. He was accompanied by the vice-rector for scientific research Prof. Janusz Smulko and the dean of the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics Prof. Jerzy Wtorek.

    Laszlo B. Kish is a Full Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Texas A&M University. His main research interests are unidentified problems and the laws, limits and applications of stochastic fluctuations (noise). He was the recipient of the Benzelius Prize of the Royal Society of Science of Sweden (2001); the Doctor of Science (Physics) title from the Hungarian Academy of Science (2001); the Honorary Doctor title from Uppsala University, Sweden (2011); and the Honorary Doctor title from the University of Szeged, Hungary (2012). He published numerous peer reviewed journal papers, books and proceedings as well as owns 6 US and 3 Swedish patents.

    "Next year Gdańsk University of Technology is going to host the international Unsolved Problems of Noise conference, established by Prof. Kish. We expect that more than a hundred scientists from all over the world will visit us", Prof. Smulko says.
