We are sorry to hear that Phoebe Ablorde, Chemical Engineering, Year 3, has died following a short illness. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this very difficult time.

Dr Tom Arnot, Senior Tutor in Chemical Engineering, said: “Phoebe was a wonderful young woman who was a pleasure to work with and will be greatly missed by all of us.”

We know that Phoebe’s death will affect her friends and fellow students and a range of support is available.
