Scientist Surpasses 10K Publication Citations

A Physics scientist recently crossed the threshold of more than 10,000 citations in scholarly works — a distinction that added his name to the 2019 Highly Cited Researchers list compiled by the Web of Science Group.

The award places Assistant Professor Madhab Neupane, Ph.D., in the top 1% of the world’s most cited scientific papers. He’s joined in this distinction by Pegasus Professor Demetrios Christodoulides, Ph.D., from CREOL, The College of Optics and Photonics, as the most highly cited researchers from UCF.

“We have a hard-working team here at UCF,” said Neupane, who has co-authored more than 75 publications. “Our group works at the frontier of condensed matter science and is always pushing to produce novel, highly influential work. This recognition highlights the global impact that our small group has in the realm of research.”

Neupane has been an assistant professor in the Department of Physics since 2016. His research focuses on the topological properties of quantum materials using various spectroscopic techniques. Simply put, he uses particular spectroscopic techniques to analyze electron patterns in materials, then identifies particular patterns in new materials that could possibly push result in new realms of technology, including quantum computing.
