Six UEA researchers have been named on a list of the world’s most influential climate change scientists, published last week.

As the world builds up to the UN’s COP26 conference in Glasgow in November, the Reuters Hot List has identified and ranked the world’s 1,000 biggest and most influential names in climate change research, with UEA’s scientists featuring heavily.

The list uses a database of hundreds of thousands of papers on climate change, with scientists ranked based on the number of papers published under their names, the number of citations their papers received and the public reach of their papers.

Based on these metrics, three of UEA’s researchers broke into the top 250: Prof Corinne Le Quéré; Prof Robert Nicholls and Prof Phil Jones.

Congratulations go to all six UEA researchers:

No. 53 – Prof Corinne Le Quéré; Professor of Climate Change Science

No. 149 – Prof Robert Nicholls; Director of the Tyndall Centre & Professor of Climate Adaptation

No. 240 – Prof Phil Jones; Professorial Fellow

No. 416 – Prof Rachel Warren; Professor of Global Change and Environmental Biology

No. 448 – Dr Irene Lorenzoni; Senior Lecturer

No. 770 – Prof Manoj Joshi; Professor of Climate Dynamics

Prof Le Quéré was also featured in a special report by Reuters as part of the list and gave an interview about her research into CO2 emissions and how she has persisted in a male-dominated field, which you can read on their website

Profiles of Prof Corinne Le Quéré and Prof Manoj Joshi are available on the University's website.
