    Highly Cited

    The Thomson Reuters citation index compiles an annual list of highly cited researchers. It used to be based on total citations. More recently it changed to look at papers cited in a ten year window and named those researchers with the most "highly cited" papers. Regardless of how the statistic is done, it's supposed to represent the top 1% of researchers in each field. In 2015 I was named on the list of Mathematics highly cited researchers and here is a link to the the UCLA press release, including the names of 29 UCLA scientists who made the highly cited list in their field. The 2016 list also included me : here is a link to a news article from my department. Clarivate Analytics is now responsible for this list.

    Named Chair

    In December 2012 I received a named Chair position at UCLA. Here is a link to the press release.
