Six Torrens University researchers named in 2023 Stanford Elsevier List of World Top 2% Scientists

Torrens University Australia researchers have been named among the world’s best on the 2023 Stanford Elsevier List in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Public Health, Geriatrics and Aged Health, Oncology, and Tourism. 

Stanford University recently released the 2023 Stanford Elsevier List representing the top 2 percent of the most-cited researchers worldwide across various disciplines covering outputs published between 1996 and 2022. Separate lists were released for citations for the same period, and another list solely for 2022 citations. 

Now in its sixth iteration, this prestigious list identifies the world's leading researchers drawing from Scopus data provided by Elsevier.  

Six Torrens University Australia’s researchers earned a place on the Stanford Elsevier rankings, based on citations for 2022, and all outputs 1996-2022. 

Our featured researchers included Centre for Public Health, Equity and Human Flourishing (PHEHF), Centre Director Professor Paul Ward, in the Top 2% for Public Health, and Research Fellow Dr Elsa Dent, in the Top 1% for Public Health / Geriatrics.  

Centre for Health Futures’ (CHEF) Associate Professor Bhawna Gupta was included in the Top 2% for Public Health / Oncology & Carcinogenesis for her contributions to Global Burdens of Disease studies.  

From Centre for Organisational Agility and Change (COCA), Professor Catheryn Khoo was awarded in the Top 1% for Sport, Leisure and Tourism. 

Professor Seyedali Mirjalili, from Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research and Optimisation (AIRO), was included in the Top 1% for Artificial Intelligence, ranking 5th globally. Torrens University Australia Learning Facilitator, Dr Shahrzad Saremi, was included in the Top 2% for Artificial Intelligence. 

Three of our researchers were named in the Top 2% of researchers for all citations between 1996-2022 across all outputs, including PHEHF’s Professor Justin Beilby and Professor Paul Ward for Public Health, and Professor Seyedali Mirjalili for Artificial Intelligence who was remarkably awarded the 17th spot globally.  

“As Torrens University Australia nears its 10-year anniversary, I am pleased that our researchers are being internationally recognised as world class researchers,” said Professor Kerry London, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research, Torrens University Australia.  

“Everyone knows it takes time to build a research culture of excellence, however we are certainly achieving extraordinarily well in our targeted research fields and fields of education, health and information technology.” 

Professor London said she was proud of the efforts of the researchers featured in the list, as well as the growing community of researchers at Torrens University who were establishing themselves in their respective fields. 

"We have several emerging stars in our research centres who will find themselves in this list, and many other notable ranking lists, in the coming years,” said Professor London. 

“We have a balance of national competitive grants, as well as industry grants, pointing to a bright future born from our synergistic balance between theoretical and applied research,” said Professor London. “This will solidify Torrens University Australia as a distinguished leader in research.”
