Karniadakis named Highly Cited Researcher™

George Karniadakis, Charles Pitts Robinson and John Palmer Barstow Professor of Applied Mathematics and Engineering at Brown University, has been named to the 2022 Highly Cited Researchers List by Clarivate Analytics. This list recognizes world-class researchers selected for their exceptional research performance, demonstrated by production of multiple highly cited papers that rank in the top one percent by citations for field and year in Web of Science. Of the world’s population of scientists and social scientists, Highly Cited Researchers™ are one in 1,000.

Karniadakis has published almost 600 articles in refereed journals which have been cited more than 74,700 times, as well as five books. He has an h-index, a measure of both scholarly productivity and impact, of 126. 

Karniadakis was elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) in February, one of the highest professional honors accorded an engineer. He was elected in recognition of his contributions to engineering for “computational tools, from high-accuracy algorithms to machine learning, and applications to complex flows, stochastic processes, and microfluidics.” He is a Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellow, and also a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS), Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). He has been a recipient of the SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science and Engineering (2021), Computational Fluid Dynamics award (2007) and the J. Tinsley Oden Medal (2013) by the U.S. Association in Computational Mechanics. Karniadakis also holds seven patents.

Other Brown University researchers on the 2022 highly cited researchers list include Michael Frank, Kenneth Mayer, and Shouheng Sun.
