Ben Clark

In 2018, we invited staff to join us for a photo shoot which would illustrate this web page and display some of the diversity which we are proud of within the University. Everyone who took part approved the photo chosen to be shown at the top of this page. Sadly Ben Clark, who can be seen centre back standing at the window, died in June 2019. In discussion with his colleagues and partner, we decided to continue using his photo in tribute to him. Ben was a graduate of the University, who went on to work with us, most recently as part of the XR Stories project. Professor Damian Murphy (Director of XR Stories) said: "Ben is remembered fondly for his love of espresso, quiet enthusiasm for his work, and calm organisation and diligence in everything he did. Ben was a talented musician and painter and his tragic and untimely death is a huge loss to our University community. He will be sadly missed".
