The Fulton Schools recently had three computer science faculty members listed on the Guide 2 Research Top H-Index for Computer Science and Electronics.
Professor Huan Liu was ranked 162nd in the country and 222nd in the world with an h-index score of 76. Professor Kurt VanLehn, the Diane and Gary Tooker Chair for Effective Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, is 420nd in the U.S. and 649th in the world with an h-index of 58. Emeritus Professor Wei-Tek Tsai is 636th in the U.S. and 103th in the world with an h-index of 49.
The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist’s most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications. For example, Huan Liu with an index of 76 has published 76 papers that each have been cited in other papers at least 76 times.
