On behalf of The American Ceramic Society, I am very pleased to officially announce that Eileen De Guire is now writing for this blog, and I expect her stories will be a welcomed alternative for readers to my meandering attempts to provide scientific and technical insights on ceramics, glass and other materials-related stories.
De Guire is an honest-to-goodness ceramic engineer (educated at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) with lots of experiences and colleagues in the materials field. She is also an experienced editor! A perfect combination, as far as I am concerned.
She also will be working with me to plan, write and edit ACerS’ Bulletin magazine, as well as on video production and other special projects.
One final note: I know that recently things have been a little quieter than usual around this blog, but we will soon be back to the normal posting pace, In fact, De Guire and I are in Savannah, Ga., and have been attending the Glass & Optical Material Division’s annual meeting and symposia. We’ve mined a lot stories and taped some great presentations. She and I over the next few weeks will be bringing you many of the news, videos and trends being discussed at the GOMD confab.
