Zwiers joins ranks of world's highly cited researchers

Science, Engineering, Peter B. Gustavson School of Business


We know we have incredible research talent here at UVic but it’s always gratifying when someone outside the university provides measurable evidence. Thomson Reuters has recently added a new UVic name—climate statistician Francis Zwiers, of the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium—to its annual list of the world’s most highly cited researchers. Very few researchers earn this lifetime distinction, which says you are in the top one per cent of most cited researchers in your field—globally. Zwiers joins Yang Shi (mechanical engineering) and Roy Suddaby (Gustavson) on the 2016 list, which covers publication citations from 2004-14. Zwiers is an internationally recognized expert on climate variability and change has contributed extensively to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
