Two Scholars of the Department of Computing and Decision Sciences ranked World’s Top 2% Scientists by Stanford

Stanford University has recently released a list that represents the world’s top 2% of the most-cited scientists in various disciplines. Prof Wong Man-leung, Professor and Head of the Department of Computing and Decision Sciences, and Prof Xie Haoran, Associate Professor at the Department of Computing and Decision Sciences, have been ranked among the world’s top 2% most-cited scientists in their respective fields.

Prof Wong’s field is research on data mining and knowledge discovery, machine learning, evolutionary algorithms, knowledge-based systems, fuzzy sets theory and internet commerce. Prof Xie, whose research expertise focuses on artificial intelligence, big data and educational technologies, is the new LU member being listed on the prestigious list.

Stanford’s large database adopts a composite indicator based on standardised citation metrics, including the number of citations, h-index (measuring scientific research output) and co-authorship. The study analysed data from 1965 to 2020, covering about seven million scientists and scholars in 22 major fields. These recognitions reflect the significant influence and research excellence of our instructors, who are committed to furthering their knowledge for the benefit of the world.
