Interesting work. I think measures such as total citation count and h-index are particularly prone to the "rich-get-richer" issue, partly just because they are combined quality/quantity measures (and senior researchers with larger teams almost inevitably produce greater quantities of work) and partly because they are cumulative measures (so length of career is a major factor for both). Personally, I think there should be more focus on rates (as well as, not instead of, cumulative totals) and on separating quality and quantity, for example looking at citations per paper per year for the former, and papers per year for the latter. I haven't done any formal research on this, but looking at profiles on Google Scholar, you can find senior researchers who have lots of 2014 articles that aren't getting cited much, alongside more junior researchers who have a few 2014 articles that have already achieved notable citation counts.
