A UWM distinguished professor has been named one of world’s most cited academic researchers in the field of engineering by Clarivate Analytics, a leading company that monitors scholarly data.

Junhong Chen is among 3,300 researchers from 900 institutions who have produced a high number of papers that rank in the top 1 percent most-cited in a field over an 11-year period.

This recognition amounts to having “won peer approval in the form of high-citation counts,” according to Clarivate Analytics, and it means the listed researchers’ discoveries inspire and challenge colleagues in their field to further advance the work.

Chen joined the UWM’s College of Engineering & Applied Science in 2003 and was named a distinguished professor of materials and mechanical engineering in 2015.

His publishing reflects a wide range of research interests, including carbon nanotubes and hybrid nanomaterials, nanostructured sensors with wide applications, and renewable energy and corona discharges.
