June 26, 2014
Two College of Engineering professors, Yury Gogotsi, Distinguished University and Trustee Chair Professor of the Materials Science and Engineering department, and Peter DeCarlo, Assistant Professor of the Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering department, were selected as “Highly Cited Researchers 2014” by Thomson-Reuters.
According to the official website, “Highly Cited Researchers 2014 represents some of world’s leading scientific minds. Over three thousand researchers earned the distinction by writing the greatest numbers of reports officially designated by Essential Science Indicators℠ as Highly Cited Papers—ranking among the top 1% most cited for their subject field and year of publication, earning them the mark of exceptional impact.”
Yury Gogotsi served as Associate Dean of the College of Engineering from 2003 to 2007. Gogotsi holds courtesy appointments in the Departments of Chemistry and Mechanical Engineering & Mechanics at Drexel University, and serves as Director of the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute. His research has been recognized with numerous awards, including Fred Kavli Distinguished Lectureship in Nanoscience, a European Carbon Association Award, Chang Jiang Scholar Award from the Chinese Ministry of Education, S. Somiya Award from the International Union of Materials Research Societies, G.C. Kuczynski Prize from the International Institute for the Science of Sintering, R.C. Purdy Award and several R.B. Snow Awards from the American Ceramic Society, NANOSMAT Prize, I.N. Frantsevich Prize from the Ukrainian Academy of Science, two R&D 100 Awards from R&D Magazine and two Nano 50TM Awards from NASA Nanotech Briefs.
Peter DeCarlo started as an Assistant Professor at Drexel University in the fall of 2011, following his Ph.D. work at the University of Colorado, a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland, and an AAAS Science Policy Fellowship in Washington DC. DeCarlo's area of research relates to air quality, climate, and visibility issues through the use of specialized analytical instrumentation to study the size and chemical composition of tiny particles online and in real time. Some of his honors and awards include receiving an AAAS Science Policy Fellowship from 2010 to 2011, a Sheldon K. Friedlander Award for Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation from American Association for Aerosol Research in 2009, and obtaining an NSF International Research Postdoctoral Fellowship from 2009 to 2010.
