Four scientists from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes have been named in the “Highly Cited Researchers” list for 2023. They are:  

  • Professor Lisa Alexander 
  • Associate Professor Alex Sen Gupta 
  • Associate Professor Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick 
  • Professor Neil Holbrook  

This list, released on November 15, acknowledges a small fraction of researchers who made significant contributions to their fields of research.

They represent only 1 in 1,000 researchers globally.   

Experts from the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) selected researchers, based on how often they were cited by their peers. The selection process relied on data from the Web of Science citation index and involved the careful review of Highly Cited Papers across various fields from the last decade. 

This year, the ISI recognized 6,849 Highly Cited Researchers from 67 nations. Among them, 321 Highly Cited Researchers hailed from Australia.
