Trujillo among the province’s 10 most influential researchers

The latest list of the University of Granada highlights the presence of more than 50 researchers from Alicante

Alicante is among the provinces with the highest number and excellence of experts in the latest list published by the University of Granada. In total, more than 50 researchers from this province appear on the list, placing it in eleventh place in terms of the quantity and quality of its researchers.

Among the prominent scientists from Alicante is Bernat Soria, professor emeritus at the Miguel Hernández University (UMH), former Minister of Health and Consumer Affairs and current researcher at the Institute of Bioengineering based on the Elche campus, who is in first place representing the province of Alicante.

In addition, other scientists from Alicante, such as Josefa Mula Bru, member of the Centre for Research in Production Management and Engineering (CIGIP), and Miguel Yus Astiz, professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Alicante (UA) and belonging to the Institute of Organic Synthesis, are in second and third place respectively.

In the list of the top ten scientists based in the province, according to this study by the University of Granada, we can find Juan Miguel Feliu Martínez (UA), Jorge Alió (UMH), Carmen Nájera (UA), Ángel Alejandro Juan Pérez (Escuela Politécnica Superior de Alcoy), Fernando Tomás Maestre Gil (UA), Ángel Linares Solano (UA) and of course our director Juan Carlos Trujillo (UA).

The same study has also identified some of the best female researchers in the region, in addition to those previously mentioned. Among them are Juana Fernández López, María Serrano Mula, Emilia Morallón, Juana Gallar and Inmaculada Sirvent.

In order to carry out this research, data obtained between 6th October and 1st March were analysed using the H-index (the quality indicator par excellence for researchers). However, due to different factors it cannot be used to compare different fields, so they have created their own formula that allows them to evaluate the solvency of researchers, including those working in different areas or even on projects in different provinces.
