According to an automated ranking system arnetminer.org, I rank 2nd in the world in the area of "data mining/query processing" according to "new star"
ranking metric (at the time of writing this). "New star" considers the researchers with academic longevity at most equal to 5 years
and ranks them based on their research activities in recent years. See the
ranking list or a snapshot taken on 22nd of January 2013.
I have received Discovery Early Career Researcher Award worth $375,000 and a Discovery Project (with Dr. Wei Wang) research grant worth $360,000.
