Seven of Anastasopoulos' articles have been cited over 100 times, including one publication cited over 412 times during the surveyed time period (2010-2020). He is one of three faculty members at UB, and one of two in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences to earn this distinction.

“This recognition represents Panos’ success in developing a highly regarded body of work, which continues to grow.” says Joseph Atkinson, professor and chair in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, “His research advances the transportation engineering field, and he also has been instrumental in developing the Stephen Still Institute for Sustainable Transportation and Logistics at UB.”

Just over 6,600 researchers were recognized as 2021 Highly Cited Researchers, and 2,500 researchers were recognized for “cross-field performance,” according to Clarivate Analytics. Anastasopoulos is one of the researchers identified for cross-field performance.

This year’s list includes 24 Nobel laureates. Also included are 77 Citation Laureates: individuals recognized by Clarivate, through citation analysis, as ‘of Nobel class’ and potential Nobel Prize recipients.

The 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.

"It is increasingly important for nations and institutions to recognize and support the exceptional researchers who are driving the expansion of the world’s knowledge." Says David Pendlebury, senior citation analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate Analytics, " This list identifies and celebrates exceptional individual researchers at the University at Buffalo who are having a significant impact on the research community as evidenced by the rate at which their work is being cited by their peers. The research they have contributed is fueling the innovation, sustainability, health and security that is key for our society’s future.”

Anastasopoulos is the Stephen E. Still Chair of Transportation Engineering in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, and also serves as the director and founder of the Engineering Statistics and Econometrics Application Research Lab. He joined the University at Buffalo in 2013.
