28.09.16 - Nine EPFL scientists have been included in the prestigious Thomson Reuters? list of Highly Cited Researchers.
The list is compiled annually from the Essential Science Indicators (ESI) metrics service of the Web of Science. The ESI tracks ESI tracks papers that have been published in the last ten years and that rank in the top 1% of the most cited papers for their respective years of publication in each of the main subject fields.
From this cohort, Thomson Reuters analysts identify author names listed on multiple reports within each ESI field. This translates to just over 3,000 names from more than 9 million researchers worldwide. The analysts then build the Highly Cited Researchers list, which is currently one of the world’s standard metrics tools used to evaluate research output.
The 2016 list includes several EPFL scientists, with the majority from its School of Basic Sciences. Specifically, the researchers are:
- Professor Michael Grätzel, director of ISIC’s Laboratory of Photonics and Interfaces (LPI) and world-renowned inventor of the Grätzel solar cells.
- Professor Paul Dyson, director of ISIC’s Laboratory of Organometallic and Medicinal Chemistry.
- Professor Anders Hagfeldt, director of the Laboratory of Photomolecular Science.
- Professor Tobias J. Kippenberg, director of the Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements.
- Professor Mohammad Khaja Nazeeruddin, Director of the Group For Molecular Engineering Of Functional Materials , EPFL Valais Wallis.
- Professor Michael C. Gastpar, director of EPFL’s Laboratory for Information in Networked Systems.
- Dr Robin Humphry-Baker, Scientific Advisor at the LPI.
- Dr Shaik Mohammed Zakeeruddin, Senior Scientist at the LPI.
- Dr Jun-Ho Yum, researcher at ISIC’s Laboratory for Molecular Engineering of Optoelectronic Nanomaterials
