Department of Zoology


Members of the Department were saddened to hear of the death of Professor Charles Ellington, FRS, on Tuesday 30th July 2019.

Charlie first joined the Zoology Department as a PhD student in 1973. He subsequently became a lecturer and went on to become Professor.  He was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1998. Charlie was an astonishing scientist whose beautiful work revolutionised our understanding of insect flight.  He will be greatly missed.

Our heartfelt condolences go to his family.
