In Memory of
Dens had been with us at IOP Publishing for an astonishing 33 years. Her role in Journals Production was her first job after graduating from Robert Gordon University, supporting a broad range of journals from a weekly condensed-matter journal to reference journal Twentieth Century Physics. She moved into Magazines in 1996 and over the years since then, her significant contributions helped turn Physics World into the world-leading magazine it is today. Her most recent role was Lead Content and Product Manager for the Media Group where she played such a critical part with her depth of knowledge, technical talents and ability to work through the most complex of problems.
Having completed a degree in Applied Physics, her passion for the subject never abated. A career in publishing was the perfect way for her to combine her love of science with her enthusiasm to bring it to everyone in an accessible and understandable way. She was exceptional at her job, combining a determination to succeed at everything she put her mind to with humility and humour.
As a friend and colleague, she was loyal and supportive, with a natural warmth and kindness. She will be greatly missed, but very fondly remembered.
