The Claudia Comberti Fund

On 9 May 2017, MSc alumna and current SoGE DPhil student Claudia Comberti tragically died in a road accident. As a testament to Claudia's life-force and passion, her family have requested that a travel bursary is set up in her name, so that students at the Environmental Change Institute, where Claudia herself studied and from which she based her research, may be supported in their field research around the world. The School has set up a special fund in Claudia's name and are now collecting donations in her memory.
