This year again, Professor Alain Dufresne is ranked by Clarivate Analytics and Stanford University among the internationally influential scientists.

World pioneer of nanocelluloses research thirty years ago, Professor Alain Dufresne has developed during his career a solid expertise in the implementation and characterization of polymer nanocomposites reinforced by nanoparticles extracted from renewable resources (biomass, agricultural residues) through his work within the LGP2 - Laboratory of Process Engineering for the Biorefinery, Bio-Sourced Materials and Functional Printing.

For the sixth consecutive year, the Web of Science Group, a company of Clarivate Analytics, quotes him in its Highly Cited Researchers 2023 list among 139 French researchers, all fields combined. Published annually, this list identifies researchers who have produced multiple papers that have ranked in the Top 1% in terms of citations in their field, demonstrating significant research influence among their peers.

For the third consecutive year, the researcher is also referenced in the ranking published by Stanford University identifying the 2% of researchers most cited in the world in their discipline. Considered the most prestigious in the world, this ranking is based on the bibliometric information contained in the Scopus database.
Among the 6,522 French researchers in all fields, Alain Dufresne ranks 18th. In the field "Polymers" in 2023, he is ranked 2nd at European level (1st in 2020 and 2022) and 9th at global level (9th in 2020, 8th in 2021 and 10th in 2022).

Professor at Grenoble INP - Pagora, UGA since 2003, Alain Dufresne conducts his research in the MatBio group (Multiscale biobased materials) of LGP2. He has published 300 peer-reviewed journal articles and the book Nanocellulose: From Nature to High Performance Tailored Materials (2nd ed. 2017 update, De Gruyter). Very involved internationally, Alain Dufresne collaborates with several universities and research centers and participates in many conferences as a speaker or even as an organizer or co-organizer.
