The ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science is proud to announce that Associate Investigator Anita Ho-Ballie has been named on the annual Highly Cited Researchers™ list from Clarivate for the third year in succession.
Anita is the John Hooke Chair of Nanoscience at the University of Sydney. Her research interests include engineering of solar materials and devices at the nanoscale and integrating them onto all kinds of surfaces to generate clean energy for different applications. Anita’s achievements include setting solar cell energy efficiency world records in various categories and reporting of highly durable perovskite solar cells.
In November 2021, she was named Australia’s leading researcher in the field of Sustainable Energy by The Australian newspaper.
The Clarivate annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.
The methodology that determines the “who’s who” of influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts and data scientists at the Institute for Scientific Information™ at Clarivate. It also uses the tallies to identify the countries and research institutions where these citation elite are based.
Australia was fourth on the list for 2021, with 332 researchers, behind the United States, China and the UK. The full 2021 Highly Cited Researchers list and executive summary can be found online here.
