Macquarie University will be celebrating the life of Dr Melanie Beresford, Associate Professor in the Department of Economics, at a memorial to be held on Friday, 15 March from 10am in the Art Gallery.
Melanie passed away at home last week, after suffering a pulmonary embolism – a sudden blockage in a lung artery, usually caused by a blood clot that travels from a vein in the leg.
Melanie’s mother and brother have travelled from Adelaide and will attend the memorial.
Melanie had worked in the Division of EFS and then the Faculty of Business and Economics for over 20 years and was admired by everyone for her courteous manner, her friendly and giving nature and her intellect.
Melanie will be sorely missed by everyone who was fortunate enough to know her, by her students, those she supervised and those who worked with her in the Department of Economics and more latterly across the University in her role as Associate Dean Research.
