It is with great sadness that we report the death of Professor Steve Rawlings. Steve was a Fellow and Tutor in Physics and Head of Sub-Department of Astrophysics at St. Peter’s College, The University of Oxford.
Steve was a great advocate of the international SKA project over many years, acting as PrepSKA Scientific Co-ordinator and as a member of the SKA Science and Engineering Committee until last year. He played a key role in the UK’s successful bid to host the Office of the SKA Organisation for the period 2012-15.
Steve will be sadly missed and our condolences go out to his family, friends and colleagues around the world.
