The highly anticipated annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.

Dr. Uversky is a professor in the Department of Molecular Medicine.  His research encompasses the analysis of protein folding, misfolding and non-folding. In particular, he focuses on experimentally and computationally characterizing intrinsically disordered proteins (i.e., those that are biologically active without unique structures) and understanding their role in various biological processes and human diseases. His work on different aspects of protein biophysics has garnered international recognition.

Dr. Uversky has earned highly cited researcher honors since 2014. His 827 publications have been cited more than 52,500 times.

Clarivate’s methodology that determines the “who’s who” of influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts and data scientists at the Institute for Scientific Information™ at Clarivate. It also uses the tallies to identify the countries and research institutions where these scientific elite are based.

The other two USF faculty members named to the 2020 list were Fred Mannering, PhD, interim director of USF’s Center for Urban Transportation with a courtesy appointment in the Department of Economics, and Wen-Xiu Ma, PhD, of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
