Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Fudong Han, Priti and Mukesh Chatter ’82 Career Development Chair in Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering, has been named one of the most highly cited researchers of 2022 in the area of cross-field by Clarivate. The distinction applies to only one in 1,000 researchers. According to Clarivate, “Highly Cited Researchers have demonstrated significant and broad influence reflected in their publication of multiple highly cited papers over the last decade.” Han joins Humberto Terrones Maldonado, Rayleigh Endowed Chair Professor of Physics, Applied Physics, and Astronomy, who was also given the distinction.
Han’s research focuses on developing advanced materials for electrochemical energy storage systems, particularly solid state batteries. His work has been published more than 70 times in a variety of scientific journals. Han is a recipient of the 2022 Electrochemical Society Electrodeposition Division Early Career Investigator Award, the 2018 Electrochemical Society Battery Division Student Research Award, and the 2017 Materials Research Society Graduate Student Gold Award. Prior to joining RPI, Han was also a guest scientist in the Materials for Energy and Sustainable Development Group at the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST).
