Having your research cited in work by others is one of the highest forms of recognition faculty can gain, and a validation that their efforts are seen as valuable by others.
Clarivate annually compiles a list of highly cited researchers, using data from the previous decade to come up with those who are in the top one percent in their field around the world, in terms of citations.
Their list for 2021 features UT-ORNL Governor’s Chair for Biorefining Art Raguaskas, two other current Tickle College of Engineering (TCE) faculty members, and a retired faculty member who was active during the time the data was gathered.
“Being a highly-cited researcher is an important acknowledgement for our individual faculty members, but it also helps elevate the college as a whole, and even the university,” said Dean Matthew Mench, the Wayne T. Davis Dean’s Chair of the college. “I am happy for them, and congratulate them in this well-deserved honor.”
In addition to Raguaskas, other TCE honorees this year include UT-ORNL Governor’s Chair for Advanced Alloy Theory and Development Easo George, Jerry and Kay Henry Endowed Professor David Mandrus, and Joint Faculty Associate Professor Jiaqiang Yan.
