The BGA is very sad to hear that Dr. Angus Skinner passed away on 1st April 2024.

Angus was a Lecturer in Soil Mechanics at Imperial College from 1967 to 1998, making huge and often understated contributions to the development of the subject through his innovative experimental research into the behaviour of particulate materials. His contributions to the teaching of soil mechanics are also renowned among students, researchers and staff at Imperial College. Angus regularly attended and contributed to lively discussions at BGA events and he will be missed.

Our condolences go to his family.
