Researcher achieves ‘h-index’ milestone
Israel E. Wachs, the G. Whitney Snyder Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has earned an h-index of over 100, based on his Google Scholar citations, placing him among the top 2800 researchers worldwide in all disciplines of all times (from approximately 1900 to the present). The h-index was originally suggested by a physicist, Jorge E. Hirsch, in 2005, as a measure of productivity and citation impact.
