Barsoum, Gogotsi, and Alumni Among 2023 Highly Cited Researchers

Clarivate, a British-American analytics company, has named 2023’s most frequently cited researchers, identified as the top 0.1% by citations for field and year. Approximately 7,000 researchers worldwide met this criteria, and two Drexel Engineering faculty made that list.

Yury Gogotsi

Distinguished University and Charles T. & Ruth M. Bach Professor Yury Gogotsi, PhD has appeared on the list for the tenth time, this year in the Chemistry and Materials Science categories. He is one of only 238 researchers who are listed in more than one category.

Distinguished Professor Michel Barsoum, PhD was named a 2023 Highly Cited Researcher in the Materials Science Category, the seventh time he has appeared on this list.

Drexel Engineering alumni who are in the top 0.1% most cited researchers include Michael Naguib (PhD ‘14), associate professor at Tulane University; Maria Lukatskaya (PhD ‘15), assistant professor at ETH Zurich; Chuanfang (John) Zhang (PhD '14), a senior scientist at Empa, a research institute in Switzerland; Babak Anasori (PhD ‘14), assistant professor at Indiana-Purdue University; and Volker Presser, who served as research assistant professor in the Nanomaterials Group from 2010 to 2012, now professor at Saarland University in Germany.

The Highly Cited Researchers list from Clarivate seeks to identify individual researchers in the sciences and social scientists who have demonstrated significant and broad influence in their field(s) of research. Each researcher selected has authored multiple Highly Cited Papers which rank in the top 1% by citations for their field(s) and publication year in the Web of Science over the past decade. Data and analysis for the list is provided by the Institute for Scientific Information, a database service founded in Philadelphia, which is now a division of Clarivate.
