Six scientists from CGIAR have been ranked among the world’s top 0.1 percent of researchers by Clarivate in their annual list of Highly Cited Researchers.  

  • Eddie Allison, Acting Director Sustainable Aquatic Food Systems, WorldFish 
  • Matthew Reynolds, Distinguished Scientist and Head of Wheat Physiology, CIMMYT 
  • Jill Cairns, Maize Physiologist, CIMMYT 
  • José Crossa, Biometrician and Distinguished Scientist, CIMMYT 
  • Shakuntala Thilsted, Director for Nutrition, Health and Food Security Impact Area Platform, CGIAR 
  • Christoph Béné, Principal Scientist and Senior Policy Advisor, the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT 

All three CIMMYT scientists achieved the same recognition last year, and for Allison it is fourth year running that he has been recognized as one of the world’s most highly cited researchers. 

Since 2001, Clarivate’s Highly Cited Researchers list has identified global research scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated significant and broad influence in their field(s) of research. It recognizes exceptional research performance demonstrated by the production of multiple papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year, according to the Web of Science citation indexing service. 

For 2023, the list recognizes 6,849 individuals from more than 1,300 institutions across 67 countries and regions.
