Three faculty from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering have been identified on Clarivate’s 2023 Highly Cited Researchers list as globally influential scientists in materials science and physics.
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 fulfil 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.
MSE researchers recognized in 2023
- John Fisher Professor and Ivan Racheff Chair of Excellence Peter Liaw, whose research focuses on the nondestructive evaluation of fatigue and fracture, as well as life-prediction methodologies, of advanced materials like high-entropy alloys and intermetallics. Liaw was recognized for his top-cited research in the field of materials science.
- Jerry and Kay Henry Endowed Professor David Mandrus, whose work focuses on the growth, discovery, and characterization of new quantum materials. Mandrus was recognized for his top-cited research in the field of physics.
- UT-ORNL Joint Faculty Associate Professor Jiaqiang Yan, whose research focuses on the design, growth, and characterization of novel materials with unusual electrical, magnetic, and thermal properties. Yan was recognized for his top-cited research in the field of physics.
