Zhu Among World’s Most Cited Materials Scientists

Recently, Thomas Reuters released it’s list of “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds: 2014”. Released less than once a decade, the list showcases the top scientific minds of the time.

Thomson Reuters uses Web of Science and InCites to analyze references from scientific papers all over the world and determine which researchers are producing the most acknowledged works, with respect to their peers in the field. As a result of this analysis, MSE@NCSU’s very own Dr. Yuntian Zhu was identified as a 2014 Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher!

Professor Zhu has previously been elected Fellow of the ASM International and of the American Physics Society. He is the Editor-in-Chief of a high-impact journal, Materials Research Letters. His research includes nanometals and alloys, carbon nanotubes synthesis and applications as well as nanomaterials for high-strength, lightweight and energy applications.

Congratulations, Dr. Zhu!
