Three Materials Science and Engineering faculty members were recognized by Clarivate as highly cited researchers this year. Clarivate recognizes "the production of multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year" via their Web of Science platform.

The three faculty recognized were Professor Michael McGehee, Professor Michael Toney and Assistant Professor Xiaobo Yin.

Professor Michael McGehee of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory specializes in perovskite solar cells and dynamic windows with adustable tinting for sustainable energy production and efficiency.

Professor Michael Toney of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering focuses on studying the underlying physics and chemistry of materials for sustainable energy, as well as the social justice implications of clean energy.

Assistant Professor Xiaobo Yin of the Paul M. Rady Mechanical Engineering Department specializes in nanomaterials and metamaterials, synthetic materials with novel properties and mechanic and electronic properties not found in nature.

These researchers were among 17 faculty from CU Boulder recognized this year.
