McLuckey accepts editorship
OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Feb. 2, 1998 Dr. Scott A. McLuckey of the Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has accepted an invitation to become a fourth editor of the International Journal of Mass Spectrometry and Ion Processes.
He has been a member of the editorial board since 1996 and has edited a recently published special issue on fundamental aspects of electrospray with Dr. G. Van Berkel.
McLuckey held a post-doctoral appointment at the FOM Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, before joining the Chemical and Analytical Sciences Division at ORNL in 1983, where he is the section head of the analytical spectroscopy section. He received a bachelor's degree from Westminster College (Pa.) and holds a doctorate from Purdue University.
His research interests are in the areas of gas-phase ion chemistry, particularly of biological molecules, and instrumentation for organic and biological mass spectrometry. McLuckey is widely known and cited for his book "Mass Spectrometry: Techniques and Applications of Tandem Mass Spectrometry" with co-authors, K. L. Busch and G. L. Glish. McLuckey has given about 160 contributed and invited presentations and written more than 140 peer-reviewed publications, books and book chapters.
McLuckey was DOW Lecturer in 1997 at the University of British Columbia and received the Biemann Medal awarded by the American Society for Mass Spectrometry. He is a member of the governing board of the Asilomar Conference on Mass Spectrometry.
McLuckey and his wife, Jean, live in Oak Ridge. They have two children, Morgan and Ian.
ORNL, one of DOE's multiprogram national research and development facilities, is managed by Lockheed Martin Energy Research Corporation.
