The list, prepared by a research team at Stanford University, included 100,000 top scientists based on their career-long citation impact (until the end of 2019) and single-year citation category (2019). Scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields.
Professor Jim was ranked 16th out of around 8,000 scientists in the field of urban and regional planning, and Professor Wong was ranked sixth among 60,000 scholars in the field of environmental science, based on their career-long citation impact (until the end of 2019).
Congratulating his fellow colleagues, Professor Cheung said, “Their achievements in knowledge creation and application are well recognized. The University is committed to creating a conducive environment for colleagues to make a greater impact for the school sector and the community.”
