Farewell to Professor Dee Bradshaw

Emeritus Professor Dee Bradshaw passed away peacefully on 7 June 2018, after a remarkably courageous battle with cancer. Dee had a lifetime association with UCT.

In 1997, Dee graduated with a UCT PhD and after that joined the Centre for Minerals Research as a Research Officer. She spent the next ten years at UCT, progressing up the ranks to Associate Professor in 2006.
