CEREAL FOODS WORLD / 113
Four New Associate Editors Join Cereal Chemistry Editorial Board
With 251 manuscripts received in 2013 alone—compared to 166 the previous year—the editors of Cereal Chemistry have not only been busy, but also more selective, raising the bar with a 70% rejection rate. “Fair, timely, and rigorous peer reviews are the cornerstone of the high quality of science published byCereal Chemistry,” said Editor-in-Chief Craig Morris. Toaccommodate the large influx of submitted papers, Morris has added four associate editors to his editorial board.
Joseph Awika (associate professor, Texas A&M University) teaches several classes, including undergraduate courses in food product development and the fundamentals of baking and a graduate course in carbohydrate chemistry. He has also served as an associate editor with the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture (2011 to present). He received his B.S. degree at Egerton University in Kenya.
Brian Beecher (chemist, USDA Grain Inspection, Packersand Stockyards Administration) graduated with bachelor’s and doctoral degrees in biochemistry from the University of Mis-souri–Columbia. He has been investigating the moleculargenetics and biochemical basis for cereal quality since 1999.In that time he has authored or coauthored more than 40 peer-reviewed journal articles and has served as chair of the AACCI Biotechnology Division. He has previously served on the edito-rial board of Cereal Chemistry and is happy to resume his duties there.
Joe Panozzo (senior research scientist, Department of Envi-ronment and Primary Industries [DEPI]) is currently involved in wheat and pulse grain quality testing at DEPI’s Grain Innova-tion Park in Horsham, Victoria, Australia. His research interests cover the association between grain composition and quality traits, particularly in high-throughput nondestructive testing to determine quality traits. Panozzo holds an honorary position with the University of Melbourne and supervises Ph.D. stu-dents from three Australian universities. In the past, he has held
chair positions for the Royal Australian Chemical Institute,Cereal Chemistry Division. He is current vice chair of the Australian Grain Science Association. In addition to serving as an associate editor on the Cereal Chemistry Editorial Board, Panozzo also serves on the AACCI Pulse and Legumes Techni-cal Committee.
Koushik Seetharaman (associate professor and General Mills Cereals Research Chair, University of Minnesota) received his Ph.D. degree from Texas A&M University, after which he worked as a consultant to the food industry before returningto academia as a postdoctoral research associate at Iowa State University and then as a faculty member at The Pennsylvania State University. Seetharaman also served as an associate pro-fessor and cereals industry research chair at the University of Guelph in Canada, where he established the graduate Cereal Research program in the Food Science Department focused on grain biopolymer interactions, particularly related to starch, protein, and lipids. He is establishing a similar program at the University of Minnesota. Over the past 10 years, Seetharaman has graduated more than 25 students and authored more than 100 peer-reviewed publications. He also mentors more than15 graduate students, postdoctoral research associates, research fellows, and visiting students and has active collaborations in more than a half dozen universities around the world. He has taught an undergraduate course in cereal science and has co-ordinated workshops in flour quality and fundamentals of baking. He is also actively involved in international ruraldevelopment programs and has worked or is working on proj-ects in a number of countries, including Namibia, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. Seetharaman joined AACCI in 1991 and has been an active member of the Carbohydrate Division and orga-nized a number of symposia. He has also served as a member of the AACCI Centennial Planning Committee, Scientific Advi-sory Committee, and Texture Technologies Awards Committee and as program chair for the 2013 AACCI Annual Meeting.

PeopleAACCI member Rebecca (Becky) Miller
has been promoted from research assistant professor to research associate professor in the KSU Department of Grain Science effective July 1, 2014. This is a great pro-fessional accomplishment and reflects the excellence in research scholarship and pro-ductivity of Miller and her research group. Miller’s research interest and expertise is
in wheat and flour quality, testing methods, and baked product quality. In addition to her research efforts and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students, she serves as director of the Kansas Wheat Quality Laboratory.
AACCI member R. P. Kingsly Ambrose, assistant professor in the KSU Department of Grain Science, is the 2014 winner of the Andersons Cereal and Oilseeds Award of Excellence. The award was created in 1999 to recognize individuals who have made superior contributions to science and/or education related to cereals and oilseeds. The award was presented to Ambrose at
the annual meeting of Mulitstate Project NC-213, “Marketing and Delivery of Quality Grains and BioProcess Corproducts” on February 24, 2014, in Omaha, NE.
Tom Guenther has been named director of food safety engi-neering at Horizon Systems. Tom has more than 30 years of experience in engineering design and project management in the food industry, most recently as design coordinator, project manager, and corporate engineer for MOM Brands. He will be concentrating on food safety in the food and pet food industries.
Mark Duffy has joined FONA International as executive vice president and chief revenue officer. He has more than 20 years of experience in the flavor and food industries. His focus will be on supporting customer needs and building mutually beneficial partnerships.
F. William Collins, a research fellow with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) in Ontario, Canada, was recently named a senior editor of Cereal Chemistry after serving as an associate editor since 2001. As a senior editor he will helpaccommodate the unprecedented number of manuscript sub-mitted to the journal. “I am delighted to have Dr. Collins accept my invitation to serve as senior editor of Cereal Chemistry,” said Craig Morris, editor-in-chief. “Bill has a tremendous depthand breadth of experience, and his contributions as SE will help ensure that our flagship journal continues its upward trajec-tory.”
Collins’ career in the cereal sciences spans 37 years. He has authored more than 200 papers, conference presentations, and technology transfer contract reports. He also holds more than 30 patents on cereal and oilseed fractionation, purification, and
end-use technologies. He has contributed review chapters to several books, including the recent second edition of Oats: Chemistry and Technology.
In 1992, Collins received the AAFC Certificate of Recogni-tion for Cereal Processing Innovation for AAFC’s patented Oat Fractionation Technology. In 2010, he received the Research Branch Science Achievement Award for hull-less oat develop-ment and processing technology. On February 2, 2013, he won Canada’s Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal for outstand-ing contributions to the field of cereal grain research and tech-nology.
In addition to his time on the Cereal Chemistry editorial board, Collins has been an active member of the AACCI Oat and Barley Products Technical Committee since 1999 and the AACCI Bio-active Compounds Technical Committee since 2009.
