About Chris Reddick

Chris Reddick was instrumental in setting up the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling (InFoMM CDT). After helping secure the EPSRC funding he chaired the Industrial Engagement Committee and supported the CDT in all its Industrial relations. The success of the CDT, as evidenced by the current size of the industrial partnership and the vibrant programme we have developed, is in no small part due to Chris' charm, vision, and tenacity. He tragically passed away in 2015. The inaugural talk of the Reddick Lecture will be given by Steve Daum, the Managing Director of PDS petrotechnical with a long career in the oil industry.
