Remembering Dr. Trevor C. Weekes (30/05/2014)
The School of Physics is saddened to report the loss of graduate, collaborator, and friend, Dr. Trevor Weekes, who passed away on May 26th, 2014. After completing his B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees at UCD, Trevor went on to have a 47-year career as a researcher at the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics. In a collaboration including researchers from the UCD School of Physics, Trevor conducted pioneering research in establishing the field of very high energy gamma-ray astronomy, and received many international awards in recognition of his work. During his career he maintained close links with the UCD School of Physics, and played a major role in the education and training of many of our PhD graduates. He will be sorely missed.
UCD School of Physics is proud to announce a scheme of advanced research awards. These awards underline UCD’s commitment to research excellence and to attract and retain the very best scholars. Applications are welcome for candidates wishing to apply for a PhD and MSc by research within UCD School of Physics.
