We have lost a valued colleague and wise advisor, John Mumford, Professor of Natural Resource Management in the Centre for Environmental Policy.
John first joined Imperial College as a PhD student in 1975 and was promoted to lecturer in 1979.
Much of his subsequent career was based within the different iterations of the College’s environmental programme. He served as the CEP’s Head of Department from 2006 to 2011.
Read about John's research activities at Imperial.
A full obituary for John can be read on the Centre for Environmental Policy website:
In the meantime, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details of a memorial service for John to be held in Windsor on 2 March 2023.
For any enquiries relating to current research and publications please contact Adrian Leach, email@example.com and for academic references Tilly Collins firstname.lastname@example.org will be able to help.
