Two researchers from the UT Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering have been identified on Clarivate’s 2023 Highly Cited Researchers list as globally influential scientists in the disciplines of biology and biochemistry.
Each year, Clarivate compiles a list of influential science and engineering researchers whose publications have been highly cited over the last decade. Qualifying publications rank in the top 1% for citations in their field (or fields) and publication years, as determined by Clarivate’s Web of Science citation index.
Because researchers must have multiple such papers and fulfill other criteria to be selected, only 0.01% of global researchers earn the title of Highly Cited Researcher; in 2023, fewer than 7,200 scientists were recognized.
UT researchers recognized in 2023
- Arthur Ragauskas, UT-ORNL Governor’s Chair for Biorefining and Interim Department Head of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, whose research focuses on creating sustainable chemical solutions for converting lignocellulosic biomass into high-value materials like biofuel. Ragauskas was recognized for top-cited research in the field of biology and biochemistry.
- Jiang Guo, a UT alumni and postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, whose research focuses on conductive polymers and epoxy nanocomposites. Guo was recognized for top-cited work in multiple fields.
