Professor YangQuan Chen has been listed among the world’s most influential researchers by the Web of Science Group, which recognizes researchers most frequently cited by their peers. In 2019, fewer than 6,300, or 0.1 percent, of the world's researchers across 21 fields, earned this distinction. Chen researches unmanned aerial systems (drones), mechatronics, control systems, cyber-physical systems and applied fractional calculus in the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the School of Engineering. He is the second faculty member in his school to earn this distinction.
