For Gill

Gill Conquest

Gill Conquest was an exceptional person and an important part of our team in ExCiteS. Gill's research crossed many disciplinary and international boundaries, as she undertook fieldwork with groups of Indigenous peoples in the Congo Basin AND the computer scientists/anthropologists working with them to develop mobile applications to address pressing issues that they identified. 

Gill was diagnosed with late stage cancer in 2016 and passed away in 2017. We will continue to honour her memory and carry on with the important research she was doing.

Gill planned to participate in future events to raise funds for the Shine Cancer Support charity as well as Macmillan Cancer Support. If you wish, you can make a donation to either of these charities through the JustGiving page set up for Gill.
