Etienne E. Kerre was born on May 8, 1945 in Zele, Belgium.He studied
mathematics at the University of Gent where he obtained a master's degree
in 1967. The year after he got the certificate of teacher education. At the
same university he obtained in 1970 the Ph.D. degree for research
concerning "Low Energy Electron Diffraction". He has published several papers
on this topic. In 1976 he started research in fuzzy set theory. At present
he published more than 300 papers on fundamental as well as practical
issues of fuzzy set theory in international journals and proceedings of
international conferences (see further for a list of research topics).
In 1991 he edited the book *Introduction to the
Basic Principles of Fuzzy Set Theory and some of its Applications* of
which in 1993 a second revised edition appeared. Already 20 students from
Belgium, Egypt, China and Bulgaria obtained a Ph.D. degree in fuzzy set
theory under his guidance. He is currently guiding the *Fuzziness and
Uncertainty Modelling Research Unit* of the University of Gent, where he
is teaching two courses on mathematical analysis to the undergraduates in
computer science as well as three courses on fuzzy set theory at the
graduate and postgraduate level in mathematics and computer science. He
has also taught several courses on fuzzy set theory and approximate
reasoning at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, U.S.A. At present he is
referee or reviewer for more than 35 scientific journals and a member of
the editorial board of international journals and conferences on fuzzy set
theory.
