Meet I&EC Research’s 2021 Class of Influential Researchers

Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research is delighted to announce the 2021 Class of Influential Researchers. These talented researchers, who are in the first 10 years or so of their independent careers, were identified through an open call for nominations, with a focus on researchers in the Americas. The nominations were then reviewed by our global team of editors and advisory board members and selected based on the quality and impact of their research.

This Virtual Special Issue comprises reviews and original research articles invited from this talented group of early-career scientists and engineers. I&EC Research is pleased to showcase these 36 authors and their work. The Influential Researchers are listed below, in alphabetical order by last name, along with their associated research articles.

I&EC Research has been at the forefront of chemical engineering research since 1909, and we continue today as the largest and most-cited general chemical engineering research journal in the world. We congratulate this 2021 Class of Influential Researchers for being at the forefront today, and we are pleased to highlight their work,” says Phillip E. Savage, Editor-in-Chief, in the Editorial. In parallel with this publication, the 2022 call for nominations to the next Class of Influential Researchers opens for early career researchers located in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
