Recently, GDE Director Barry Barish announced the appointment of Gerald Dugan, professor of physics at Cornell University, as the regional director of the ILC Global Design Effort for North America.

While details are still being worked out, Dugan has accepted the appointment. The announcement was made at a meeting of the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel (HEPAP) in Washington, DC. Dugan is the second GDE regional director to be named, following the appointment of Fumihiko Takasaki (KEK) as regional director for Asia.

Dugan has worked on numerous collider projects and programs, and he currently serves as one of convenors of the ILC working group on sources, damping rings and bunch compressors for the linear collider.

As regional GDE director, Dugan will oversee and coordinate the ILC R&D efforts of the four lead laboratories in Canada and the United States, where funding is provided by the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation.
