Vale Lieutenant Colonel (ret.) Emeritus Professor E James Kehoe FRSN

Emeritus Professor James Kehoe FRSNThe Royal Society of NSW records with great regret the passing of one of its valued Fellows, Emeritus Professor Jim Kehoe FRSN, on 15 July 2021.

A senior academic from the School of Psychology at UNSW, Jim became a Fellow of the Society in 2012 and contributed in many ways to the expansion of the society in the mid-2010s. He was an enthusiastic member of the Council (2016 to 2018) and offered his publishing skills to the Society by editing the Bulletin from 2015 to 2017. He continued and nurtured our association with the Chief Scientist and Engineer of NSW and the yearly meeting of Deans of Science and Engineering to advise the Awards Committee as Chair of the Awards Committee from 2016 to 2019. Professor Kehoe’s activities for the RSNSW were recognised by the Citation of the Society in 2019.

Jim was a behavioural neuroscientist who researched associative learning, instructional design, using neural network models, and computer-based learning. He was a senior officer in the Australian Army Reserve, advising on character and values, and teamwork and leadership development. He had a black belt in, and was a teacher of, karate.
