Six school members and researchers affiliated with the College of Tennessee, Knoxville, are included on the 2020 checklist of Extremely Cited Researchers from Clarivate. 5 of the six are a part of the distinctive long-term partnership between UT and the Oak Ridge Nationwide Laboratory.
Annually, Clarivate acknowledges influential researchers of their respective educational fields—those that have a number of extremely cited publications over the previous decade. Names are pulled from publications that rank within the high 1 p.c by citations for a subject (or fields) and publication 12 months within the Net of Science quotation index.
These acknowledged in 2020 embrace:
- Sheng Dai, professor of chemistry at UT and group chief of nanomaterials chemistry at ORNL, whose work focuses on the synthesis and characterization of practical supplies for energy-related functions
- David Mandrus, the Jerry and Kay Henry Endowed Professor of Supplies Science and Engineering at UT and joint school appointee at ORNL, whose work focuses on progress, discovery, and supplies physics of recent digital and magnetic supplies
- Steven M. Smart, professor of arithmetic at UT, whose work focuses on multiphase flows, shifting boundary issues, nonlinear integro-partial differential equations, numerical strategies, and quick solvers for quite a lot of issues
- Jiaqiang Yan, affiliate professor of supplies science and engineering at UT and workers scientist in supplies science and know-how at ORNL, whose work focuses on the design, progress, and characterization of novel supplies with uncommon electrical, magnetic, and thermal properties
- Colleen Iverson, school member within the UT-ORNL Bredesen Heart for Interdisciplinary Analysis and Graduate Training and ORNL senior workers scientist, who works on the root-soil interface to analyze how atmospheric and climatic change alters below-ground carbon and nutrient biking
- Richard Norby, school member within the Bredesen Heart and ORNL workforce chief in environmental sciences, who research the results of accelerating ranges of atmospheric carbon dioxide on terrestrial ecosystems
“Prime-tier analysis universities play pivotal roles in advancing data by means of the analysis and scholarship of world-class school,” mentioned Deborah Crawford, vice chancellor for analysis. “The presence of UT school on this checklist is a mirrored image of the standard and influence of the establishment’s contributions to science and know-how.”
Greater than 6,000 researchers in 21 fields of science and social sciences, in addition to cross-field classes, had been tallied and selected for the 2020 list based on the number of highly cited papers produced between 2009 and 2019.
“The data frontier is superior by communities of researchers who, working individually and collectively, contribute to their fields,” mentioned UT’s Provost, Dr. John Zomchick. “UT college students have the chance to do analysis with, study from, and be mentored by world-leading school researchers working on the forefront of their fields.”
