International Recognition for Professor Harriet Bulkeley

(19 January 2017)

Professor Harriet Bulkeley has been recognised as one of the world’s most highly cited researchers in 2016.

Compiled by Clarivate Analytics, previously the IP & Science Business of Thomson Reuters, the 2016 Highly Cited Researchers list includes over 3000 researchers from 21 disciplinary areas whose papers are amongst the top 1% cited over the period 2004 - 2014 calculated using data from the Web of Science.

Harriet is one of under 200 social scientists included in this year's list. Her research is concerned with the politics of environmental governance and examines society's responses to climate change. She has published 7 books, several edited collections and over 50 papers. Her recent work includes An Urban Politics of Climate Change (published with Routledge in 2015) and Accomplishing Climate Governance (published with Cambridge University Press in 2016).

"Being included in the Highly Cited Researchers 2016 is a great personal honour" says Harriet "but one that also reflects the work of all of the collaborators I have been fortunate to work with over this time and the growing importance of social sciences in understanding global environmental challenges".
