BIOGRAPHY


Kian-Ping Lim is a Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Economics and Administration, University of Malaya, Malaysia. He holds a B.B.A. (Hons.) from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and a M.Sc. (Financial Economics) from Universiti Putra Malaysia. His PhD research (Oct 2005-Sept 2009, Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics, Monash University), under the supervision of Prof. Robert Brooks and Prof. Paul Jae Kim, explores three empirical issues on the information efficiency of stock markets- nonlinearity, relative efficiency and evolving efficiency. A comprehensive review of this emerging strand of research is summarized in his 2011 JES paper. He reckons the 4-year PhD journey is the most productive phase of his academic career, publishing 18 out of 21 papers written during candidature in discipline journals.

As of December 2018, Kian-Ping Lim has published 1 edited book, 71 refereed journal articles (18 WoS, 20 Scopus), 11 chapters in book and 4 articles in professional magazine. Despite not having a first degree in economics, his research is largely published in mainstream economics and finance journals. Among them are Applied Economics Series (Applied EconomicsApplied Financial EconomicsApplied Economics Letters and Applied Financial Economics Letters, Taylor & Francis), Economic Modelling (Elsevier), Economics Letters (Elsevier), Journal of Economic Surveys (Wiley-Blackwell), Journal of Emerging Market Finance (Saga), Journal of Empirical Finance (Elsevier), Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions & Money (Elsevier), Journal of Policy Modeling (Elsevier), International Review of Financial Analysis (Elsevier), Macroeconomic Dynamics (Cambridge University Press), Manchester School (Wiley-Blackwell), North American Journal of Economics & Finance (Elsevier), Research in International Business & Finance (Elsevier) and Singapore Economic Review (World Scientific). His methodological contributions on nonlinearity were acknowledged by the sciences (specifically econophysics), with two of his papers published in journals indexed by Science Citation Index, namely Physica A (Elsevier), and Chaos, Solitons & Fractals (Elsevier).

Despite his narrow focus on equity market research, the published articles of Kian-Ping Lim are well read by the academic community. His h-index and citations place him as one of the leading financial economists in Malaysia, as recorded by WoS (h=9, citation=388), Scopus (h=14, citation=677) and Google Scholar (h=22, citation=1671). In IDEAS Ranking of Economists in Malaysia, he has been consistently ranked Top 5% for the past decade. His article “Financial crisis and stock market efficiency: empirical evidence from Asian countries” (co-authored with Robert Brooks and Jae Kim) was listed ScienceDirect Top 25 Hottest Articles in International Review of Financial Analysis for 35 consecutive quarters since April-June 2007 until its service discontinuation by Elsevier at the end of 2015. Notably, the paper occupied the top spot in Oct-Dec 2008, Jan-Mar 2009, Apr-June 2009 and July-Sept 2009.

In terms of research network, Kian-Ping Lim has collaborated with more than 20 researchers from countries such as Australia, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and the United States. He has the privilege of working with the late Prof. Melvin Hinich since the beginning of his academic career. Prof. Hinich was a world class scholar whose publications traverse four fields: the spatial theory of voting in political science, time series analysis in statistics, political economy and regulatory issues in economics, statistical theory and methods in engineering. Their long distance collaboration on the bispectrum and bicorrelation tests has produced 9 published papers.

Apart from research, Kian-Ping Lim also contributes to the profession, serving mainly as journal reviewers (see Publons). He was the founding managing editor for Labuan Bulletin of International Business & Finance (Oct 2002-June 2005). Currently, he serves as the Managing Editor for Malaysian Journal of Economic Studies (flagship publication of the Malaysian Economic Association), and associate editor for Capital Markets Review (flagship publication of the Malaysian Finance Association) and International Journal of Economics & Management. In terms of administration, he was the Deputy Dean (Research & Innovation) at his previous institution- Labuan School of International Business & Finance, Universiti Malaysia Sabah (Jan 2010-Jan 2012). Currently, he serves as the Deputy Dean (Research & Development) at the Faculty of Economics & Administration, University of Malaya (Aug 2016-). 

His passion for research and academic achievements attracted the interest of a corporate magazine, Top 10 of Malaysia. The interview was featured in Issue 10 of the magazine. Kian-Ping maintains a personal website at http://www.kianpinglim.com, providing information on his research activities and output.
