GOMBAK, 14 July 2018: Despite a young age and perceived impossible to achieve his dream, this researcher has published 77 publications of indexed journal articles in science and technology.
Dr. Mohd Adli Md Ali, 30, represented not only the challenge that young academicians faced in conducting research but his achievement would also be an inspiration and encouragement to the others.
“For young lecturers like me, this is a challenge to get a big grant and a platform for doing research and what this award means to me is that it represents other young researchers’ determination,” Dr. Mohd Adli told IIUMToday after receiving a Promising Researcher Award at IIUM Quality Day on Thursday (12 July).
Not only that he is contributing 27 percent of the IIUM total cumulative, about 12, 732 citation, his achievement looks more outstanding as he has served the university for only one year and the half.
Having teaching responsibilities in Physics at the Kulliyyah of Science, Kuantan campus, Mohd. Adli, who was honoured with the Highest Number of Publications and Citations awards, clarified that those 77 publications were the result of collaborative efforts with other researchers.
Asked about the future of Physics field, specifically in IIUM, he said he believed that the university has a bigger role to play to give more fundamental knowledge in terms of science understanding and application.
“Physic represents fundamental of sciences like biology and maths, so it certainly plays a greater role as the fundamental,” he said adding that the Department of Physics is very new in IIUM.
Mohd. Adli reminded researchers to balance the needs of Key Performance Indicator (KPI) and to understand the purpose of research.
The award was in recognition of the outstanding contribution of young researchers who have contributed significantly to IIUM MyRA marks under Research Management Centre.
Among the publications on his area of specialisation, including physical sciences, high energy physics and medical and health sciences, are:
- 2018 – Inclusive search for a highly boosted higgs boson decaying to a bottom quark-antiquark pair.
- 2017 – Measurement of the differential inclusive B+ hadron cross sections in pp collisions at s=13 TeV
- 2017 – Measurement of vector boson scattering and constraints on anomalous quartic couplings from events with four leptons and two jets in proton-proton collisions at s=13 TeV
Earlier, IIUM staff’s contribution to the university in both the academic and non-academic agencies were honoured in a ceremony during IIUM Quality Day 2018 held at IIUM Cultural Centre (ICC). ***
