BIGHEART Acting Director among world's most highly cited researchers

BIGHEART Acting Director Professor Lim Chwee Teck has been honoured as one of 30 NUS researchers in the global Highly Cited Researchers 2018 list released by Clarivate Analytics, which acknowledges researchers with multiple papers ranking in the top one per cent by citations for their field and year.

This year, a new cross-field category has been introduced to acknowledge researchers with substantial influence in several fields, and as a result the number of NUS researchers named in the Highly Cited Researchers 2018 list more than doubled the number in 2017.

Professor Lim is one of the 13 NUS researchers named under the cross-field category in recognition for their cross-disciplinary work.

NUS President Professor Tan Eng Chye said, “We are heartened to see an increasing number of NUS researchers making their mark as top researchers in their fields, contributing to Singapore’s research community and influencing the world with their scientific excellence. This is a testament of NUS’ strong commitment in growing and nurturing exceptional research talent who are inspirational and capable of making a difference to the world. We are proud of the achievements and growing impact of the highly talented researchers at NUS.”

“The NUS researchers who have been named under the cross-field category also attest to the multi-disciplinary and highly collaborative research environment NUS provides for our researchers, enabling them to work closely with researchers, institutions and companies across different disciplines to innovate for the betterment of the society,” Prof Tan added.
