Faculty members in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering are among the best in the world
A new study from Stanford University shows that 12 faculty members in TAU's Department of Materials Science and Engineering are among the world's leading researchers in various fields
The full list includes about 160,000 researchers from 22 scientific disciplines and 176 sub-disciplines and is based on an analysis of their articles and citations from the Scopus database, both throughout their careers until the end of 2019 (top 2%) and in one calendar year (2019).
Among the core faculty, Prof. Noam Eliaz was ranked in the top 0.62% throughout his career and in the top 0.29% in 2019 in the Materials sub-field. Prof. Emeritus Nava Setter placed in the top 0.23% and 0.55%, respectively in the sub-field of Applied Physics.
Among the affiliated faculty, Prof. Dov Sherman placed in the top 1.62% throughout his career in the Materials sub-field. Throughout their careers, Prof. Yosi Shacham and Prof. Yossi Rosenwaks placed in the top 0.86% and 1.97%, respectively, in the sub-field of Applied Physics. Prof. Dan Peer placed in the top 0.39% and 0.39%, respectively; Prof. Fernando Patolski placed in the top 0.63% and 2.51%, respectively; Prof. Gil Markovich placed in the top 1.69% throughout his career; and Prof. Tal Dvir placed in the top 2.47% in 2019 – all in the sub-field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Prof. Ehud Gazit placed in the top 0.32% and 0.14%, respectively, in the sub-field of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Prof. Meital Zilberman placed in the top 1.84% and 2.27%, respectively, in the sub-field of Biomedical Engineering. Prof. Rami Haj-Ali placed in the top 1.29% throughout his career in the Mechanical Engineering sub-field.
This study serves as evidence for the scientific and multidisciplinary excellence of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Tel Aviv University on a worldwide scale.
