Professor Lowry Named Among World's Most Highly Cited Researchers

Professor Lowry Named Among World's Most Highly Cited Researchers

Blenko Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering Greg Lowry is one of the world’s most highly cited researchers in the sciences and social sciences, according to the new Thomson-Reuters list published online this month. The list includes about 3,000 highly cited researchers in the sciences and social sciences. Researchers make the list if their research publications were in the top one percent of the most cited papers for their subject field and year, and indexed in the Web of Science.

Lowry is regarded as a well-known expert in water quality engineering, with a focus on contaminant fate, transport and in situ treatment in sediment and groundwater systems. His research interests broadly include Environmental Nanotechnology, Energy and Environment, and Environmental Remediation.

Lowry is a leader among his peers at institutions in the U.S. and around the world. His research, teaching, and professional service are well known in the environmental engineering and science academic communities, both nationally and internationally.  He is also the Deputy Director of the Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) which explores the relationship between a vast array of nanomaterials— from natural, to manufactured, to those produced incidentally by human activities— and their potential environmental exposure, biological effects, and ecological impacts.

Details on the criteria and method for creating the list are available online.
