Professors Andrea Alù, and Matthew Sfeir were recognized for producing multiple papers ranking in the top 1% by citations in their field.
Two ASRC faculty members were named Highly Cited Researchers, according to the recently released Highly Cited Researchers 2019 list from the Web of Science Group.
Please join us in congratulating these esteemed researchers:
Andrea Alù, director of the ASRC Photonics Initiative and Einstein Professor of Physics at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
Matthew Sfeir, a faculty member in the ASRC Photonics Initiative and professor of physics at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
The 2019 list identifies 6,217 scientists and social scientists who produced multiple papers ranking in the top 1% by citations for their field and year of publication, demonstrating significant research influence among their peers. The list includes 23 Nobel laureates, three of whom were announced this year.
The methodology that determines the influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by experts at the Institute for Scientific Information at the Web of Science Group.
“Recognition and support of these exceptional researchers represents an important activity for a nation or an institution’s plans for efficient and accelerated advancement,” said David Pendlebury, senior citation analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information. “The Highly Cited Researchers list contributes to the identification of that small fraction of the researcher population that contributes disproportionately to extending the frontiers of knowledge. These researchers create gains for society, innovation, and knowledge that make the world healthier, richer, more sustainable, and more secure.”
