5 UC Riverside scientists among world's most influential scientific minds
Date:8/22/2014

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Thomson Reuters, a leading source of information for businesses and professionals, has included five researchers at the University of California, Riverside in its 2014 list of "some of the best and brightest minds of our times."

To generate the list, the company analyzed citation data over 11 years (2002-2012) to identify researchers whose published work has had enormous impact.

The following UC Riverside researchers were included among some 3,200 individuals who published the greatest number of highly cited papers in one of 21 broad fields:

Roya Bahreini, an assistant professor of atmospheric sciences, was included in the "Geosciences" field. Julia Bailey-Serres, a professor of genetics, was included in the "Plant & Animal Science" field. Robert Haddon, a distinguished professor of chemistry as well as chemical and environmental engineering, was included in the "Chemistry" field. Wei Ren, a professor of electrical and computer engineering, was included in the "Engineering" field. And Yadong Yin, a professor of chemistry, was included in two fields: "Chemistry" and "Materials Science."

Highly cited papers rank in the top 1 percent by citations for their field and year of publication.

According to Thomson Reuters, the researchers who made the list are persons of "influence in the sciences and social sciences. They are the people who are on the cutting edge of their fields. They are performing and publishing work that their peers recognize as vital to the advancement of their science. These researchers are, undoubtedly, among the most influential scientific minds of our time."

Bahreini's research interests include airborne, ground-based and laboratory measurements of aerosol composition and microphysical properties; air quality; and aerosol direct- and indirect-effects on climate. Bailey-Serres works on providing modern solutions to agricultural challenges by unraveling the complexities of plant response to environmental challenges. Haddon's lab focuses on the electronic structure and properties of molecules and materials, with emphasis on transport, magnetism, superconductivity, device fabrication and miniaturization, and the discovery of new classes of materials. Ren's research is directed at multi-agent systems, cyber-physical systems, cooperative control, distributed control, networked control systems, autonomous vehicles, and robotics. Yin's research focuses on the synthesis of nanomaterials, a class of materials with special properties stemming from their nanoscale morphological features.

Thomson Reuters analyzed the citation data using its Web of Science and InCites platforms to determine which researchers produced work that is most frequently acknowledged by peers. Web of Science and InCites include an array of publication and citation-based data sets for gauging performance.
