Griffith University’s research excellence has once again been recognised nationally, making the list of leading research institutions in The Australian newspaper’s special Research supplement.
The research leaders’ list is based on a big data analysis of up-to-date publicly available information with Griffith research in 14 fields of research and five researchers who are leaders in their respective fields (see list below).
Acting Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research) Professor Andrea Bishop said the recognition affirms Griffith’s commitment to excellence in research and innovation across a range of disciplines, from discovery to societal impact.
“This acknowledgment reaffirms the exceptional contributions of our researchers in providing far-reaching solutions to global and regional challenges,’’ Professor Bishop said.
Two of Griffith’s early career researchers were also recognised as ‘Rising Stars’ – Seyedali Mirjalili (Artificial Intelligence) is a specialist in swarm intelligence and optimisation recognised for introducing new approaches and techniques. Maja Folkersen’s (Environment Law and Public Policy) research interests include environmental economics and climate change.
