The staff and greater community of the Isaac Newton Institute are greatly saddened by the death of Samantha Skehel, who has been taken from us far too early.

Sam joined the Isaac Newton Institute in June 2015. She oversaw and developed INI’s administrative functions, reshaping and building a strong team to support the Institute’s visitor research programmes. She was instrumental in shepherding through many major projects at INI such as the conversion of the (largely unused) library into the Admin Suite as it is now; launching the INI Green Impact initiative which led to the achievement of bronze, silver and gold awards for sound environmental practice; and helping to develop the Newton Gateway into a major force in maths impact.
