A new report by the George W. Bush Institute and Opus Faveo Innovation Development recently named Drexel University the most innovative mid-sized research university in the country. Read the full story here.
Congratulations to Dr. Jiabin Wu, who was a visiting student at Drexel in 2018, on the occasion of his appointment as Assistant Professor at Dongguk University in Seoul, South Korea.
DNI Alum, Dr. Gleb Yushin, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Georgia Tech, Editor-in-Chief of Materials Today, and Co-Founder and CTO, Sila Nanotechnologies, Inc., was elected a Fellow of the Materials Research Society (MRS), The Electrochemical Society (ECS) and the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) this year. This is a well-deserved recognition of his achievements! We wish Gleb further successes.
Göknur Cambaz Büke, Drexel PhD 2008, who is currently on faculty in the Department of Materials Science and Nanotechnology Engineering, also acting as Vice Director of the Graduate School of Engineering and Science at TOBB University of Economics and Technology, Ankara, TURKEY, has been appointed Vice President for Research and Innovation at TOBB. This is a major achievement in such a short time after graduation!
Two of the five most cited papers in Advanced Materials (based on citations published in the last three years) are Drexel MXene papers: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/15214095?tabActivePane=
That’s quite impressive, taking into account the AM is the best journal in our field, not only because of the its IF 25.8 and #7 among all journals in Google Scholar, but also because of its reputation!
Our recent alum, Prof. Babak Anasori, is among top 5 trending authors in the field of Materials Science. He is also No. 20 in the world in Prestige in the field, in top 50 most cited authors (#46) and in top 100 in h-index in Materials Science for the past 5-year period in the world. Check Microsoft Academic: https://academic.microsoft.com/authors/192562407
Babak received his PhD from Drexel MSE in 2014 (advisor – Prof. M.W. Barsoum) and stayed as post-doc and Research Asst. Prof. in my group for several year prior to joining IUPUI in summer 2019. He is a rising star. A major star already.
