In summary

  • Eleven Swinburne researchers have been ranked among the top 200 scholars in Australia in computer science and electronics by Guide2Research
  • Swinburne’s ‘h-index’ measuring researchers’ productivity and impact is the third highest in Victoria and seventh in Australia
  • Guide2Research is a leading portal for the exploration and analysis of computer science

Eleven Swinburne researchers are ranked in the top 200 scientists in the field of computer science and electronics by Guide2Research.

Guide2Research is the leading research portal for computer science. 

Researchers earn their ranking by showing leadership and excellence computer science and electronics. Their position is based on their h-index value from Google Scholar, which looks to measure both productivity and impact.

This year, Swinburne increased its total h-index from 443 in 2020 to 617.  That’s the third highest ranking for a university in Victoria, and the seventh highest in Australia.

The following Swinburne researchers have been ranked in the top 200 in Australia:

Ranking Researcher h-index
5 Professor Qing-Long Han 97
Professor JinJun Chen 63
48 Professor Yang Xiang 60
61 Professor Timos Sellis 57
75 Professor Vo V Anh 55
84 Professor Tsong Yueh Chen 53
103 Professor Dimitrios Georgakopoulos
121 Professor Yun Yang 47
140 Associate Professor Xian-Ming Zhang 45
160 Professor Leon Sterling 42
162 Professor Zhihong Man 42

The researchers’ areas of interest include autonomous control systems, cloud computing, data science, mathematics, cybersecurity and software analysis.

Distinguished Professor Qing-Long Han is Swinburne’s Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research Quality) and a Fellow of The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). As well as being fifth in Australia, Professor Han has risen to 258th in the world, up from 320 in the 2020 rankings.

Five of the influential researchers who made the list work in Swinburne’s Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering.

As part of its Horizon 2025 vision and strategy, Swinburne’s goal is to bring people and technology together for a better world.  It is committed to working with organisations and government to co-create technology solutions and the talent required to implement them.
