R.I.P. Carolina Ödman-Govender

Just got back from a lecture to hear the heartbreaking news that Carolina Ödman-Govender has passed away after a long battle with cancer. I first met Carolina when she was a PhD student at the University of Cambridge about 20 years ago. I think that was at a conference in Erice. She was a lovely human being who was held in the highest esteem by everyone who met her. It is devastating that such an inspirational figure is no longer with us. I send heartfelt condolences to husband Kevin, her family, friends and colleagues at this terrible time.
