Mohamed S. El-Genk, Distinguished and Regent’s Professor of Nuclear Engineering at The University of New Mexico, has been ranked among the world’s top 2% most cited researchers by Stanford University’s Meta-Research Innovation Center.

The annual study by Stanford measures the impact of the world’s researchers across 22 scientific fields. A composite indicator rates researchers by citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index and ratio of citations to citing papers. The ranking calculations are performed using all Scopus author profiles as of Sept. 1, 2022. This recognition indicates the continued impact of the published work by El-Genk with fellow researchers and graduate students in space nuclear power and propulsion and nuclear engineering technologies and applications.

El-Genk is also the founding director of UNM’s Institute for Space and Nuclear Power Studies.
