Many of the world’s most talented energy technology experts call NETL home, and a recent analysis published by Stanford University underlines this fact, listing 25 current and former NETL researchers as being in the top 2% of global scientists.

“We have some of the most advanced scientific facilities in the world, but our greatest asset is still our people,” NETL Director Brian J. Anderson said. “The Stanford analysis looks at the impact researchers have within their scientific communities, and it’s clear that our work reaches far beyond the walls of our laboratories. In the last year alone, NETL research has been cited thousands of times in scientific publications.”

The analysis comprised lists according to career-long impact and single-year impact. Current and former NETL researchers listed in the top 2% for career-long impact were David E. Alman, Sofiane Benyahia, Ray Boswell, Ronald W. Breault, Ömer N. Doğan, Yuhua Duan, Michael C. Gao, Randall S. Gemmen, Angela L. Goodman, Evan J. Granite, Jeffrey Hawk, Gordon R. Holcomb, Mehrdad Massoudi, Phuoc Tran, Henry W. Pennline, James Rawers, Harpreet Singh, Ranjani Siriwardane, D.H. Smith, and C.M. White.

Current and former NETL researchers listed in the top 2% for single-year impact were Ray Boswell, Ronald W. Breault, Dominic Alfonso, Yuhua Duan, Michael C. Gao, Angela L. Goodman, Evan J. Granite, Jeffrey Hawk, Gordon R. Holcomb, Douglas Kauffman, Barbara Kutchko, Ping Lu, Mehrdad Massoudi, Phuoc Tran, Harpreet Singh, Ranjani Siriwardane and Venna R. Surendar.

“It’s truly inspiring to see so many familiar names on these lists,” Anderson said. “Even more impressive is that many of our researchers appear on both lists — showing not only a phenomenal year but also an impressive research career.”

The analysis was conducted through the Departments of Medicine, of Health Research and Policy, of Biomedical Data Science, and of Statistics, and Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford University.

NETL is a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory that drives innovation and delivers technological solutions for an environmentally sustainable and prosperous energy future. By leveraging its world-class talent and research facilities, NETL is ensuring affordable, abundant and reliable energy that drives a robust economy and national security, while developing technologies to manage carbon across the full life cycle, enabling environmental sustainability for all Americans.
