Jianguo "Jack" Liu, Rachel Carson Chair in Sustainability and EEB core faculty member, is one of five researchers and professors from Michigan State University recognized in the “2023 Highly Cited Researchers” list, a ranking organized annually by Clarivate Analytics.

The national list recognizes research scientists from across the globe who have offered expertise and significantly influenced their respective fields of research. The list is created from highly cited papers that rank in the top 1% of citations for field and publication year in Clarivate’s Web of Science citation index. Of the world’s population of scientists and social scientists, highly cited researchers are one in 1000.

The release of the list is highly anticipated by hundreds of organizations and institutions every year. MSU researchers continue to make the list, with all five of this year’s awardees also having been included in the 2022 list. Their extensive expertise ranges from sustainability to human medicine to environmental science, among other disciplines.

Liu, a University Distinguished Professor in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, focuses on addressing complex human-environmental challenges through systems integration. He has been named as a highly cited researcher in 2018, 2021 and 2022
