Two UNH faculty members — professor of sociology David Finkelhor and professor of natural resources Serita Frey — are among the Web of Science Group’s 2019 Highly Cited Researchers. The list, which includes just 0.1 percent of the world’s researchers, recognizes the most influential researchers of the past decade, demonstrated by the production of multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1 percent by citations for field and year in Web of Science.
Finkelhor, University Professor and director of UNH’s Crimes Against Children Research Center, is a leading expert on child victimization, child maltreatment and family violence. He is editor and author of 11 books and more than 150 journal articles and book chapters.
Frey studies how human-generated stressors like climate change, agriculture and invasive species affect ecosystems, particularly soil microbes. She has published in leading journals, including Science, PNAS and Nature Climate Change.
