The researchers funded under this grant studied the evolution of impact in scientific careers and discovered i the presence of hot streaks in careers, ii the effect of luck over individual careers. The researchers also investigated the role of interdisciplinarity in science and found that i strongly disciplinary work can have an impact across multiple disciplines, ii there exists a measurable chaperone effect, and that reputation is one of the main drivers of artistic impact. Finally research was conducted into gender inequality in scientific careers and a systematic gender gap in productivity was discovered between men and women which can explain the gender gap in impact.
