New Year Honours: Grey Lynn physicist Shaun Hendy commended for Covid-19 response

Caroline Williams Reporter from Central Leader

A physicist who played a major role in the nation’s Covid-19 response has been appointed a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the New Year Honours.

Grey Lynn resident Shaun Hendy used his expertise in the science of complex systems to map out how the virus could spread across the country under various scenarios.

His models revealed the severity of the threat and influenced the government’s decision to “go hard and go early” in its response.

“It has been a very difficult year, but in the end it has been very satisfying to have played a role in helping New Zealand get through this pandemic."
