The family of a California researcher killed by rocks thrown by protesters in Ethiopia. Sharon Gray’s family said in a statement released late Thursday night that she was a passionate scientist, friend, spouse, sister, daughter and colleague. They called her a bright human being with whom they were lucky to share part of their lives.
The statement says Gray’s family members are picking each other up and growing together in her absence. They have started a fundraising webpage aimed at mentoring young women in science in her name. Gray was in the African country for a meeting to kick off a research project when she was killed Tuesday while traveling in a car in the outskirts of the capital, Addis Ababa.
The area has seen months of deadly protests. The exact circumstances of the attack remain unclear. Gray’s department chair at the University of California, Davis, says she was a leader in the study of how climate change affects plants.
