Dr. Norine Dobiesz, a scientific programmer/senior research associate at the QFC since 2013, passed away December 2018 after battling abdominal cancer.  Norine was a staple at the QFC providing computing advice to students, research associates, and faculty and was a major advocate for hard thinking, data integrity, and software version control.  She is greatly missed.
