I have a lot of professors, and I want to have a way to know how respected and successful academically speaking each one of them is.
The reason is that some professors talk very highly about themselves and it seems that they are very good at what they do but I suspect it sometimes isn’t the case. I want to go work at the summer in the university under some professor and I want to try to get accepted my someone who really does interesting things.
I tried searching for a professor rank system or something similar online but I didn’t find anything. Does some ranking system even exists?
I also tried looking on the published papers of some professor, I saw a lot of papers but how can I know if they are of quality or low level and meaningless.
