In memoriam


In deepest sadness and with our profound sympathy for the family we say goodbye to our most valued friend and colleague

Victoria Ann Roloff
PhD Student, 9th June 1984 – 12th February 2018

Inspired by the night skies, she dreamed of becoming a scientist from an early age. After a successful career at Cardiff University and the University of Surrey she joined us at the Planetary Imaging Group of the Space Research & Planetary Sciences Division as a PhD student. For the past four years she has been supporting the team that built the instrument CaSSIS, Switzerlands first Mars camera system.

Vicky touched our hearts with her British humor and uplifting personality. We miss her deeply as the professional scientist and dear friend she was to us.
