UNSW Canberra Associate Professor Andrey Miroshnichenko has featured on the 2019 Clarivate Analytics List of Highly Cited Researchers.

The engineering academic and Scientia Fellow said he was very excited to be included on the list, alongside other notable researchers and Nobel Laureates.

Associate Professor Miroshnichenko’s work with optically resonant nanoparticles and his highly cited papers are published in Reviews of Modern Physics, Science, Scientific Reports, ACS Nano and Nature Communications.

The prestigious list is compiled annually and recognises world class researchers selected for their exceptional research performance based on the number of citations for papers published over a decade, in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences, and a further cross disciplinary category.

Associate Professor Miroshnichenko is one of 30 UNSW academics to feature on the list, marking a 50% increase for the University over last year.

This year’s list features more than 6,000 researchers whose citation records position them in the top 1% by citations in their field. With 30 researchers on the 2019 list, UNSW ranks second among Group of Eight universities. UNSW has experienced a meteoric rise in the number of researchers on the list with a tenfold increase since 2016 when the university ranked seventh among Go8 with just three academics included.

UNSW Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research, Professor Nicholas Fisk congratulated the top UNSW researchers on making the prestigious list.

“This meteoric rise in UNSW academics on the prestigious Highly Cited Researchers (HCR) list is unprecedented among Australian universities,” Professor Fisk said. 

“Our numbers have risen tenfold in four years, which is a real tribute to UNSW’s 2025 Strategy delivering excellence across several fronts.”

David Pendlebury, Senior Citation Analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information said: “Recognition and support of these exceptional researchers represents an important activity for a nation or an institution’s plans for efficient and accelerated advancement. The Highly Cited Researchers list contributes to the identification of that small fraction of the researcher population that significantly extends the frontiers of knowledge.”
