To confuse things a little,
we have published in (some of) the same journals,
lived in the same countries, belong (or have belonged) to
departments with "Industrial Engineering"
in their titles, and (I believe) both have
Singaporean wives. Many have
confused us (even my friends).
A rough heuristic: papers with
"logistics", "supply chain", or something
combinatorial in the title are
probably his, and those with "financial",
"stochastic", "control", or "portfolio" are probably mine.
The papers on "berth planning" are not mine.
.. and for many many many papers I did not write,
you can take a look

Have you heard about the h-index of an author?
Check out the description in
and also the PNAS article by Hirsch.
can compute your h-index (or anyone elses if you're nosey ;-)) -
just search under Author in Web of Science
and click Create Citation Report.
While it is not really fair to compare "cross culturally",
it is fun all the same.
On December 31 (2006), the journal Operations Research
had an h-index of 111 while Management Science
had an h-index of 125.
According to the Nature article, the physicist
Edward Whitten, back in 2005, had an h-index of 110
(look here for their list of
Are worried about the size of your index? Do you wish it was bigger? Here are some things you can try to
make it grow really fast. (You need to be 21 or over to click through on this) ;-)
