Matthew Akpoge Obande

MSc, 2007; PhD, 2011

Matthew suffered a fatal cardiac arrest whilst playing basketball on 28th April. He had newly been appointed as a lecturer in Nigeria and had been successful in securing a grant to study means of reducing postharvest losses of staple crops – a topic to which he felt very committed to at all levels.  A powerfully built, gentle and devout man Matthew made many friends and will be sorely missed.

How are the mighty fallen….
