Posted on: 15 November 2022

Eight researchers affiliated with Trinity feature on the annual Highly Cited Researchers™ 2022 list from Clarivate, which identifies researchers who have demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade.

Professors Valeria Nicolosi, Andrew Bowie, Stefano Sanvito, Brian Lucey, Padraic Fallon, Luke O’Neill (in two separate fields) and Jonathan Coleman all appear, while Patrick Devine-Wright, based at the University of Exeter but who holds a secondary affiliation with Trinity, completes the list.

Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.

Valeria Nicolosi is Professor of Nanomaterials & Advanced Microscopy in Trinity’s School of Chemistry; PI at CRANN and AMBER, the SFI Centre for Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research; and PI at I-FORM, the SFI Centre for Advanced Manufacturing.

Andrew Bowie is Professor of Innate Immunology in Trinity’s School of Biochemistry and Immunology, based in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Instutute (TBSI).

Stefano Sanvito is Professor of Condensed Matter Theory in the School of Physics, Director of CRANN and PI at AMBER.

Brian Lucey is Professor of International Finance and Commodities in Trinity Business School.

Padraic Fallon is Professor of Translational Immunology in Trinity’s School of Medicine and TBSI.

Jonathan Coleman is Professor of Chemical Physics in Trinity’s School of Physics and PI at CRANN and AMBER.

Professor Wolfgang Schmitt, Dean of Research at Trinity, said:

“It is a great achievement for eight of our researchers to appear on this list, which confirms the significant impact Trinity research has on the research community across the globe – as evidenced by the rate at which their work is being cited by their peers. I personally thank the academics and their teams for their hard work and dedication.

“Importantly those named this time, along with their colleagues, are making a key difference in developing new technologies, economic studies and treatments to help people live healthier and more sustainable lives. They are also sharing their time and expertise to train the next generation of students and researchers, liaise with industry partners and policymakers, and communicate the importance of their work to a wide audience.”
