We are thrilled to report that, for the second year in a row, Professor Fedor Sukochev of UNSW Mathematics and Statistics has been identified as the top researcher for Mathematical Analysis in The Australian’s Research magazine.

In addition, UNSW was named as the top research institution in the field of Computational Mathematics - also for the second year running! 

The annual publication lists the top researcher and top research institution across 250 fields of academic endeavour, based on the number of citations for papers published in the top 20 journals in each field over the past five years.

"I am very honoured to once again be recognised as a field leader, given that this is the main cause to which I have dedicated my life's work", said Professor Sukochev. "However, again it cannot be said that this is my achievement alone. I am now part of a wonderful research group, and such an achievement is the result of all the hard work of my colleagues and my students, as well as a recognition of the work of my former students and collaborators. We will continue to work hard".

Professor Ian Sloan commented on the top ranking of the Computational Mathematics group at UNSW, which includes Tareq Alodat, Josef Dick, Alexander Gilbert, Frances Kuo, Quoc Thong Le Gia, Bill McLean, Ian Sloan, Thanh Tran and Rob Womersley.

“It is great to see this national recognition of the School’s outstanding group of researchers in computational mathematics", said Professor Sloan. "All its members are active at an international level, and in demand. It is exciting to see Australia punching above its weight in so many contemporary areas of application, including uncertainty quantification, fractional calculus, spherical approximation/cosmology, stochastic computation and discrepancy.”

We warmly congratulate Professor Sukochev and colleagues and the UNSW Computational Mathematics group for this well-deserved acknowledgement of excellence.
