Remembering Sarah White, Geography Postdoctoral Fellow

July 29, 2022

It is with sadness that I write to inform that Sarah White passed away last week from heart complications due to Covid. She is survived by her husband, Tristan, and her two young children, Helen and Martin.

Sarah was a UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellow in our department and had just completed her term this past June. She was a foremost scholar on the climate of the Pliocene, a dedicated educator, and a warm and generous colleague and friend to those that knew her. She was committed to increasing accessibility in STEM and served in our department’s antiracism working group. She will be greatly missed.

A memorial fund set up through gofundme has been created to help Sarah's family with medical expenses and a create a fund set up in Sarah's children's names. Please consider donating.
