Professor Zidong Wang, from the Department of Computer Science has recently been selected to become a member of Academia Europaea within the area of Physics and Engineering Sciences.
Academia Europaea is a European, non-governmental association with approximately 4000 members, made up of scientists and scholars with an aim to promote learning, education and research. The academy's goal is to promote excellence in scholarship for the benefit and education of the public in subjects including physical sciences and technology.
Professor Wang has been conducting world-leading research in the general areas of dynamical systems, signal processing, bioinformatics, control theory and applications. He has published 572 SCI papers (including 250+ IEEE Transaction papers) as the corresponding author with the H-index 119 (by Google Scholar) and H-index 102 (by Web of Science). He has had 81 Highly Cited Papers, which count 32% of a total of 257 from Brunel University. He has been ranked as the 4th highest by H-index for scientists in the UK (see http://www.guide2research.com/scientists/UK). His total citations amount to 42,259 (and 24,298 since 2015). In addition, he has published 11 research monographs since 2010.
In view of Professor Wang’s outstanding research achievement, he has been elevated to IEEE Fellow in 2013. He was named as the Hottest Researcher in Big Data Analysis by Thomson Reuters in 2012. In 2014-2019, he has been named as Highly Cited Researcher in both categories of Engineering and Computer Science for consecutive 6 years by Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thompson Reuters).
