Dr David Washbrook, 1948-2021

A statement from Oxford Analytica's Director of Analysis, Nick Redman.
February 10, 2021

Dr David Washbrook sadly passed away on January 24, 2021 after a short illness. David's association with Oxford Analytica stretched over several decades; he was a prolific contributor to the Daily Brief and a Region Head who guided our analysis of South Asia for many years.

A scholar of acuity and a man who cared as much for his students’ wellbeing as their intellectual development, David was an insightful, engaging participant at our morning conferences and annual meetings.

We are poorer as a company and a community for his loss.
