Location: Department of Botany, 464 Great King Street.
Rob Daly was an IT / Electronics Technician in the Botany Department from 1996 until his death in 2005. He was not the "archetypal" computer technician - he was most comfortable in sandals and shorts, and his office and workshop was an untidy assortment of bits of computers jumbled with data loggers, cross-country skis, bows and arrows and other equipment essential to the department's fieldwork. Sadly he died on 29 January 2005, after his pushbike was involved in a collision with a car being driven the wrong way in Great King St, Dunedin, directly outside his workplace.
He is remembered as a patient, understanding man who always had his door open to students and colleagues.
