He also involved in the workshop on "Activity Based Teaching and Learning of Mathematics: Soap Bubbles and Soap Films" organized by University Project 2 TRIG of Hue University in cooperation with Department of Mathematics, College of Education.
At the workshop, Prof. Morgan delivered lectures on Isoperimetric Problem, Mathematics and student's research. Research outcomes relating to Soap bubbles and Soap films that were done by Prof. Morgan with his colleagues and students at well-known universities in USA were also introduced.
Being a reputable American mathematician, Prof. Morgan is recognized worldwide through achievements in teaching and research including Award for Excellence in undergraduate teaching in 1982; Proof of Double bubble Theorem in 2000. He also released 150 articles and published 6 books. "Geometric measure theory" is one of the best of his on this field, which is translated to Russian and Japanese. Prof. Morgan, currently, is Vice President of Mathematics Association in USA, founder of SMALL undergraduate research project, and professor of such famous universities in USA as MIT, Princeton, Williams.
On this occasion, Prof. Ngo Dac Chung, Vice Rector was warmly welcomed Prof. Morgan and showed his expectation to receive more concerns from Prof. in developing faculty and staff for Department of Mathematics.
