Dr Andres Goeta
(10 August 2011)
We're sorry to announce that Dr Andres Goeta died suddenly on Friday 29th July. Andres was a highly valued colleague and friend to all in the Department. He was a talented scientist, excellent teacher and generous and warm-hearted person. He will be sorely missed.
Andres joined Chemistry Department in the University in 1995 as a PDRA in crystallography and was appointed to the new post of X-ray Service manager in 1998. He was promoted subsequently to Senior Research Officer and became a key figure in the department, collaborating with many staff, running the X-ray service, leading his own research group, working on innovative instrumentation projects in crystallography and lecturing to graduate and undergraduate students. He was a co-editor for Acta Crystallographica, co-organiser of the Durham Crystallography Schools and a member of the Council of the British Crystallographic Association.
Our thoughts are with his young family at this difficult time.
