Axel Timmermann selected as one of World’s Most Highly Cited Researchers

Axel Timmermann, Director of the IBS Center for Climate Physics at Pusan National University, has been added to this year’s Clarivate Analytics list of Highly Cited Researchers. This list identifies scholars whose publications are in the top 1% citations by their peers during the last decade. This is the second consecutive year that Dr. Timmermann has received this recognition in the ‘cross-field’ category, which selects scientific accomplishments that influence a variety of fields.

Dr. Timmermann has published and co-authored over 170 peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals including 9 in Nature. His work has been cited more than 17,000 times (Google Scholar). 

“I am honored to be recognized as one of World’s most highly cited researchers. But this recognition goes mostly to the numerous students, postdoctoral fellows and amazing collaborators that I had the privilege to work with over the past 20 years. I am also pleased to see that our efforts to understand the climate system on a variety of timescales have impacted many other fields and that this year’s selection  in the “cross-field” category resonates with my desire to spread and convey research ideas and discoveries to the broader scientific community and the general public.”, said Dr. Timmermann.
