Announcement of the death of Louise Poulson

The University regrets to announce the death of Louise Poulson, former lecturer in the Department of Education.

Louise joined the department in May 2000 and was quickly promoted to Senior Lecturer, making valuable contributions to many programmes (the Post Graduate Certificate of Education, the MA in Education, the EdD and the MRes) in addition to her effective supervision of PhD students.

Her books, co-written with Professor Mike Wallace, on learning to read critically have become standard texts for many students. She had a successful research profile and was recently appointed to the Editorial Board of the British Educational Research Journal.

She moved to Queen’s University, Belfast, last November as Reader.

Her family were with her when she died last night peacefully. Funeral arrangements will be announced shortly.
