Dr Mark Everingham

We are very sorry to have to inform you of the death of Dr Mark Everingham, Lecturer in the School of Computing.

Mark graduated in Computer Science from the University of Manchester, where he proved to be a student of exceptional achievement. Awarded his PhD by the University of Bristol in 2002, he became a research fellow at the University of Oxford, working on a project in the area of computer vision, with the aim of bringing a cognitive level of understanding to video material. In 2006, he was appointed to an RCUK Academic Research Fellowship in the School of Computing and was made Lecturer when his Fellowship had run its course.

A very gifted computer scientist, Mark's research in the area of computer vision and machine learning had already earned him many plaudits. His loss is keenly felt by all who knew and worked with him, particularly his colleagues in the School of Computing.

Mark's colleagues in the Machine Vision community have established a page to collect personal tributes.

Any student needing support or further information is asked to contact the School's Student Support Office; for all other enquiries, please contact the Head of School, Dr. David Duke.

Mark's own description of his work can be found on his original personal web page.
