    Is 'Dr Du' actually a doctor?

    I couldn't find anything online to substantiate his calling himself a doctor.
    Does he have a PhD or MD? Otherwise that's fraudulent.

    he probably has a doctorate degree in maths either in Australia or overseas (just a blind guess)

    "Doctors" are usually considered doctors either if their a practicing medical "doctor" or have a "doctorate degree"

    I guess where I'm coming from is, sometimes amongst asians (not racist; I'm asian myself), there is a tendency to false advertise your qualifications.
    Like calling yourself a lecturer vs. just being a tutor.

    I know what doctor officially means, but often doctors post their qualifications up to substantiate it. But couldn't find any for Dr Du.

    Is that a fair characterisation? There are cons in any community.

    Dr Du if he is entitled to use of the address 'Dr' probably has a PhD. But Dr Truong, from what I read, is a medical doctor, who happens to be good in maths.

    Suppose Dr Du is a con 'Dr', but is extremely good in mathematics, would you then not sign up with him?

    Dr Du has a PHD in the mathematical analysis of the way of going through the most green lines in a straight line. (Or something like that it is about the mathematical analysis of a real life problem). I thought that it was just a name but he really does have a PHD.

    Ps. Former student and it was part of our Trivia at Dr Du grad
