Mathew Cooke 1989-2016

last modified Feb 04, 2016 05:02 PM

We are very sad to announce that our PhD student, Mathew Cooke, passed away on Wednesday 27th January 2016. His determination to continue his PhD despite his illness shone through, and his warm wit and kind manner will be terribly missed. His supervisors Professor John Loughlin and Dr Pieter van Houten wrote: 

'We first met Mathew as his PhD supervisors when he came to Cambridge three years ago. Two things about him struck us. First, his keen intelligence and thirst for knowledge. Second, his cheerful and friendly disposition. His mind was very sharp and he quickly grasped the theoretical and empirical literature of his subject, contemporary nationalism. In the many meetings we had with him, he never lost his optimistic outlook and, despite several stays in hospital, insisting on continuing his research. He always had a gentle smile and was invariably kind. We would like to thank Peterhouse for its continued generous support of Mathew and would like to extend our condolences to his family and friends.'
