Scientific Impact

The data was automatically retrieved from Google Scholar on the 03 February 2021.

Cumulative citations and publication number, automatically scrapped from Google Scholar.
Sometimes, the total number of citations is strongly driven by few particularly well-cited publications. This plot, showing the number of citations per publication, suggests that most of my papers are rather homogeneously cited.

Collaboration Network

The data is retrieved from the Google Scholar co-author list (that one must update manually on its scholar profile by clicking the + button and accept the suggestions), thus not 100% accurate (e.g., co-authors without a scholar profile are not listed).
