2 memories for Dr Chakib Kara-Zaitri

Alexis Flippen von Zimmer

Chakib was far more than a doctoral advisor. He was a living inspiration to achieve and excel. Chakib came to the US to help me study and pursue my work in risk analysis at NASA. He was beyond generous with his time, warmth and knowledge. My time at Bradford was cut short, but I have been able to complete doctoral studies elsewhere due to Chakib's inspiration. Sadly missed but not forgotten. Alexis Flippen von Zimmer


An inspirational leader taken from us too soon. In addition to his core work in engineering and academia Chakib made a lasting contribution to Public Health through his development of HP Zone and the support of his medical co-workers in this field. He developed us and our horizons alongside the task and the technology. Your relentless striving is over. Rest in peace.
