Professor Yury Gogotsi is in Top 50 of the Stanford List of Highly Cited Researchers

In the latest update of the Stanford List of Highly Cited Researchers published on October 19th, Professor Yury Gogotsi was in top 50 in the world among all disciplines (#44 without self-citations included) and was in top 3 in the nano field based on number of citations in 2020.

The “Stanford List” is the most thorough bibliometric analysis of over 100,000 top-scientists that provides standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions and a composite indicator. Separate data are shown for career-long and single year impact. Metrics with and without self-citations and ratio of citations to citing papers are given. Scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. The selection is based on the top 100,000 by c-score (with and without self-citations) or a percentile rank of 2% or above.

Cover Article in Science Translational Medicine

The very comprehensive article that we produced in collaboration with the research teams of Flavia Vitale and John Medaglia was chosen to be the cover article in Science Translational Medicine. Flexible electrode arrays composed of Ti3C2 MXene (MXtrodes) performed epidermal sensing of muscle activity when applied to the scalp, arm, hand, chest, or face of human volunteers. The flexible electrode arrays were compatible with clinical imaging modalities and could be used for electrophysiological recording and neuromodulation during brain surgery in pigs and rats. This is really a powerful excurse into the use of MXenes in electrodes that can replace gold and platinum in medicine. 

Congratulations to our alumni Tyler and Kanit who co-authored this work!
