Michael Meyers

The UCLA Physics community is deeply saddened to learn of the death of graduate student Michael Meyers, who lost his life in the Mt. Whitney area the weekend of November 8. UCLA was notified of this tragic loss by law enforcement in Inyo County this past weekend.

A native of Minnesota, Michael was a student in the simulation of plasmas group doing research under the supervision of Warren Mori. His parents, David and Catherine, would like Michael’s friends and colleagues to know that Michael lived his life on his own terms. He did what he wanted to do. They are certain that he was happy to the end and that he loved his work and the challenges from it.

We join together in offering our deepest condolences to all of Michael's family and friends. UCLA counseling resources are being offered to all of those impacted in our campus community.
