Congratulations to Prof Zhang Yong-Wei for making into Clarivate's list of Highly Cited Researchers 2021. This is his 4th consecutive year in receiving this accreditation. His work at A*STAR's IHPC employs and develops theories and modelling and simulation tools to investigate the structural, mechanical, electronic, thermal and chemical properties of materials, with a focus on new material design, additive manufacturing, nanoelectronics, and green energy.

"Currently, I lead several research projects, including an NRF CRP Project on 2D materials-based in-memory computing, an AME Programmatic Project on accelerated materials development for high entropy alloys, an A*STAR SERC CRF Award Project on materials for green energy, and the AME IAF PP projects on digital twins for additive manufacturing."

Prof Zhang Yong-Wei is Principal Scientist II and Deputy Executive Director (Research) at IHPC. He is an Adjunct Professor at the National University of Singapore and Singapore University of Technology and Design. He has published more than 500 peer reviewed international journal papers and was listed as a Highly Cited Researcher in 2018, 2019 and 2020 by Clarivate. He is an Editorial Board Member for Advanced Theory and Simulation (Wiley), Modelling and Simulation in Materials Science and Engineering (IOP), and International Journal of Applied Mechanics (World Scientific).

Congratulations to all recipients at Clarivate's list of Highly Cited Researchers 2021.
