HKU Engineering researchers recognized for high numbers of citations

Jan 5, 2017

Ten 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, 2016 edition. Among the ten, two are from Engineering – Prof. James Lam of Mechanical Engineering and Dr. Siu-ming Yiu of Computer Science. Professor Lam is an expert in control theories and systems, and Dr. Yiu’s research spans two major fields in computer science, information security and bioinformatics. Congratulations to Prof. Lam and Dr. Yiu!

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 2016, 111 HKU colleagues made it to the list, among whom 26 (23.4%) are from the Faculty of Engineering. EEE tops our list with 10 colleagues, followed by 7 from Civil, 5 from Mechanical, 3 from Computer Science, and 1 from IMSE. Congratulations to our colleagues on their great achievements!
