PML scientists named as Highly Cited Researchers


Two PML scientists have been named on the annual Highly Cited Researchers 2020 list from Clarivate, marking the second year PML has been represented on the list.

Professor Penelope Lindeque, PML's Head of Science for Marine Ecology & Biodiversity, appears on the list for the second year running, alongside her colleague Dr Matthew Cole, a new entrant to the list. Both were named as Highly Cited Researchers in the field of Environment and Ecology, thanks to their wide range of significant scientific work, particularly in the field of microplastics and plastic pollution.

Prof Lindeque said: “It’s a real honour to have been listed as a Highly Cited Researcher again this year along with Dr Matthew Cole, highlighting the fantastic science carried out by our whole team here at PML. We couldn’t have achieved this without the hard work and dedicated efforts of many students and colleagues in the microplastics team and molecular team.

I look forward to continuing our exciting collaborative research and working towards cleaner, healthier seas for everyone.”
