My Google Scholar Stats up to Today

No Comments

I found it interesting to view my own Google Scholar page, just to see how am I performing as a relatively new academician and researcher. As one who just joined the faculty in mid 2008, I think I need to improve more. Thank God I have several publications in 2012 and 2013. I’m also fortunate to already have a paper published this year, 2014. I hope I can work harder and smarter to improve my citations and h-index. Presently I only have 8 citations and my h-index is only 2.

The reason I post the snap shot above is for me to compare my future stats with this one. I just hope to see some positive progress. InsyaAllah.

What is POWERWALL? Do we need a powerwall?

No Comments

Have you heard about Powerwall? When I first heard/read about it, I have no clue what it is. I read more about it from their website. Then I found the answer.

So, what is a Powerwall?

My understanding… It is a huge computer screen, bigger than any monitor that I have seen before. It cannot be positioned on a table. It can only be fixed on a wall. Hence, any data interpretation/analysis that requires huge display can be easily monitored via the Powerwall.

The actual detail about Powerwall is as follows:

The powerwall has a large rear projection surface of 5.20 m x 2.15 m which is illuminated by 8 networked and synchronised projectors. Thanks to the high resolution of 4640 x 1920 pixels and the soft-edge blending that provides an overall picture with no overlapping, it is possible to picture large quantities of data down to an extreme level of detail.

For us chemical engineer, is Powerwall relevant for us?

I believe it is especially when massive data interpretation and analysis are involved. Also when there are several pages of data, it ease data comparison and analysis. Information that need to be zoomed, can also be viewed clearly as the screen is massively huge. Don’t you agree with me?

More information about Powerwall can be referred here.

New citations to my articles – #1 in 2014

Earlier today, while checking my emails via my wife’s Samsung Galaxy S3 phone (due to my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 motherboard faulty), something caught my attention right away. It was this email from Google Scholar Alerts. I clicked the email and saw a new article published in Applied Catalysis A: General. What surprised me further is that the title of the paper is about Glycerol conversion to olefin… which was the topic I worked for my Ph.D. It is good to see somebody else is pursuing this research area.

From this, I would like to see:

1. More researcher pursuing this specific area.

2. To see more of my articles cited by others.
