Shackelford has BS and MS degrees in Ceramic Engineering from the University of Washington and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at McMaster University in Canada, he joined the University of California, Davis, where he is currently Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science. A member of the American Ceramic Society and ASM International, he was named a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society in 1992, was named a Fellow of ASM International in 2011, and received the Outstanding Educator Award of the American Ceramic Society in 1996. In 2003, he received a Distinguished Teaching Award from the Academic Senate of the University of California, Davis. In 2012, he received the Outstanding Teaching Award of the College of Engineering at UC Davis. He has published well over 100 archived papers and books including Introduction to Materials Science for Engineers now in its 8th Edition and which has been translated into Chinese, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish. A Japanese translation is in preparation. Penelope L. Shackelford has a BA degree in English and Philosophy from Loyola Marymount University and an MA degree in Arts and Consciousness from the John F. Kennedy University. After careers as a teacher and an art gallery owner, she became a journalist, a role in which she has served as an arts writer for the Davis Enterprise, Artweek, and a variety of national arts publications. She served as Associate Editor for Arts for the journal Multicultural Education. In addition, she has written about wine making in California, Washington, and New Mexico. She has traveled with James extensively exploring major winemaking regions domestically and around the world. She chronicles these travels in her blog: Travels with Penelope.
