HKU Engineering researchers recognized for high numbers of citations

Feb 1, 2018

Twelve HKU researchers have been named among the most highly cited researchers in the world by Clarivate Analytics, the former Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters, in their Highly Cited Researchers report, 2017 edition. Among the twelve, four are from Engineering – Professor Lam Tak-wah and Dr Yiu Siu-ming of Computer Science and Professpr James Lam and Professor Dennis Leung of Mechanical Engineering. Congratulations!

Somewhat independently, HKU commissions a search each year to identify the top 1% scholars at HKU. The database adopted for the exercise is Clarivate Analytics’ Essential Science Indicators (ESI), which uses data from Web of Science indexed journal articles with results presented in 22 subject fields. For the year of 2017, 118 HKU colleagues made it to the list, among whom 28 (23.7%) are from the Faculty of Engineering. EEE tops our list with 13 colleagues, followed by 6 from Civil, 5 from Mechanical, 3 from Computer Science and 1 from IMSE.

Congratulations to our colleagues on their great achievements!
