Mário Figueiredo, professor at Instituto Superior Técnico and researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações, is included once again in Thomson Reuters 2016 list of Highly Cited Researchers.
The professor is one of the six researchers from Portuguese institutions, and the sole researcher from Universidade de Lisboa, appearing on this very restricted list.
“To be considered a Highly Cited Researcher makes me feel very proud and honoured. Belonging to that restricted group means that my work has been recognised and highly cited by my peers, and the fact that this is happening for the third consecutive year makes me especially proud” said the professor. Mário Figueiredo noted that “the publications whose citations led to this distinction have not resulted from individual work, but rather from a collaborative work with students and colleagues.”
The Inclusion on Highly Cited Researchers lists has great relevance to Técnico and Universidade de Lisboa, since this is one of the criteria used for rankings of higher education institutions.
