It is with sadness that we write 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. Sarah was committed to increasing accessibility in STEM and served in our department’s antiracism working group. Read more about Sarah here. She will be greatly missed.
A gofundme has been set up to help their family with medical expenses and a fund for her children. Please consider donating.
