Academics recognised as world-leading experts in wide-ranging science disciplines, from renewable energies and soil science to chronic disease prevention and cancer research.

14 University of Sydney academics are among the world's most influential in their fields, according to the Clarivate Analytics 2019 Highly Cited Researchers List.

Spanning several fields of the sciences and social sciences, from renewable energies and soil science to chronic disease prevention and cancer research, the Sydney scholars named on the list this year are: 

Their research was ranked in the top one percent of most referenced papers in their field from 2008 to 2018. 

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Duncan Ivison said the results reflect the significant contribution Sydney scholars are making to science and are a testament to the unprecedented investment the University has made recently in supporting researchers through career development, project funding and world-class research facilities.

“These distinguished scholars are at the very top of their fields, conducting important work that is helping to decode neurodegenerative diseases, find new treatments for melanoma and advance artificial intelligence," Professor Ivison said.

We are proud to support world-leading research that makes great strides in advancing knowledge and contributes to key global issues.
Professor Duncan Ivison, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research)

“Over the past few years, we have invested significantly in our researchers, launching several new internal funding schemes to mentor up-and-coming researchers and provide project funding for innovative research as well as establishing a suite of highly advanced research infrastructure.”

Professor Ivison added that since 2011, the University has invested heavily in multidisciplinary research, including lauching 10 whole-of-university initiatives focused on bringing in expertise from several fields to rethink some of the world’s most complex and pressing issues.

These include improving access to mental health treatment, with highly cited scholar Professor Ian Hickie and his multidisciplinary team at the Brain and Mind Centre recently launching a ground-breaking mental health care platform which may dramatically reduce waiting times for young people who need urgent support.

Australia has the fifth largest number of highly cited researchers in the world (behind the US, China, UK and Germany). The number of researchers working at Australian institutions, who are recognised as Highly Cited, has more than tripled in six years, from 80 in 2014 to 271 in 2019.
