We are greatly saddened by news of the death of Vicky Neale, BA MMath MA PhD Camb, Whitehead Lecturer in Mathematics from 2014, Supernumerary Fellow from 2016. She died on 3 May 2023. Her loss is keenly felt in Balliol and the Mathematics community in Oxford and beyond.

Dame Helen Ghosh, Master, writes:

Vicky Neale was an inspirational mathematician and a brilliant teacher, as devoted to her students as they were to her. To every aspect of her life here in College she brought wisdom, energy, humour and enormous integrity. She was much-loved for all that she was, and will be greatly missed by everyone whose life she touched. We will be flying our flag at half-mast for Vicky, as a Fellow of the College, until Friday 5 May and again from Sunday 7 May.’ 

Oxford’s Mathematical Institute invites people to share memories of Vicky here.

A memorial service is to be held on 11 November 2023: details will be announced in due course.
