We are delighted to congratulate two members of our Department on their appointments in The Queen's Birthday Honours List.
Congratulations to Professor Angela Ruth McLean, Professor of Mathematical Biology at the University of Oxford, who is appointed DBE for services to mathematical biology and to scientific advice for government. On receiving her appointment, Professor McLean said: "I am delighted to receive this honour and to see the two topics of mathematical biology and the use of science in government recognised in this way."
Congratulations also to Professor Katherine Jane Willis, Professor of Biodiversity at the University of Oxford, who is appointed CBE for services to biodiversity and conservation. Professor Willis said:
It is a huge surprise to be recognised in this way and I feel honoured and privileged - in particular for doing something I feel so passionately about. However, it is not just a recognition of my own achievements but of the many scientists and colleagues I have been lucky enough to work with at Oxford and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
We would also like to congratulate our colleague Professor Jane Langdale who was appointed a CBE in The Queen's Birthday Honours List today, for her services to plant science.
