It is with great regret that InfoLab21 reports the death of Professor Doug Shepherd, who died on 23rd August 2006. Doug came to the University in the early 1980s as Professor of Computing. At the same time he became increasingly involved with Computing Services (ISS) and also became Director of Information Systems Policy and then Dean of Engineering, Computing and Mathematical Sciences (known as SECAMS). Doug was forced to take early retirement due to poor health in 2002, but maintained an interest in the work of his colleagues and of InfoLab21.
