|ICDD New Faces|
A number of changes have taken place at the International Centre for Diffraction Data upon the retirements of Editor-in-Chief, Frank McClune and Principal Scientist, John Faber. New editors and scientists have been hired, and both Frank and John continue to provide help and support to the ICDD and the membership as consultants. Frank continues to be involved as an editorial consultant working with ICDD grantees and John is coordinating global educational opportunities as chairman of XRD clinics and symposia.
The ICDD is very pleased to announce the following changes and additions.
STAFF PROMOTIONS - Congratulations!!
Dr. Kabekkodu began his tenure at the ICDD in 1999 as a Post Doctoral Research Fellow. At the end of his post doc, Suri readily accepted the position of Editor of Calculated Patterns. During the last 8 years, Suri has spearheaded the editorial task of adding more than 500,000 calculated powder patterns and more than 100,000 crystal structures from collaborating databases. Suri chaired the task group to develop the methodology for evaluating calculated patterns based on their crystal structure and implemented the Calculated Pattern Quality Mark system. He developed many analytical and diagnostic programs that help to evaluate, organize and categorize the data. This has had an enormous benefit on recognizing pattern quality and has also enhanced our ability to recognize and remove duplicate entries.

The addition of new editors enables the ICDD to accelerate editorial work on Powder Diffraction File databases. Current editorial activities include subfile enhancements, data quality reviews, cross reference additions and assignments, data standardization, and physical property calculations. Their work will provide future users with new and improved database features and capabilities.
