Meet The Council
Hello everyone! As your new president of the society I am delighted to be a part of this committee and cannot wait to see you all at the events we have planned over the next year. Please feel free to contact me with anything you would like to see happen this year or any other ideas in general!
Football and going to the gym
Hi, I'm Shaun and I'm a first year PhD student in the Symes Group working on sonochemistry (chemistry from ultrasound!). As VP I'll be working with the president to help with the day to day running of the club, as well as organising our bigger events throughout the year. Looking forward to it!
Cooking, singing, reviewing pints of Guinness in Glasgow
I'm a first year PhD student, working with OLED materials within the Skabara and the Bayliss groups. This is my first year in the committee, and I'm looking forward to helping set up some great events!
Watching movies and cooking
Hi! I'm your treasurer for the year - this means I'm responsible for budgeting and making sure we have enough money so that all our events have everything you need!
Ballet, archery and gardening (among many other things)
Hello! As your website manager, I’ll be in charge of the alchemist website to keep you informed about the alchemist's goings on
Bouldering, choir, and most things nerdy 🤓
Health and Wellbeing Rep
Hi i’m Drew and i’m your health and well-being rep for the year and I am currently in 4th year.
Outside of chemistry I love all things musical theatre 🎭
Hi I’m Ross, postgrad rep for the alchemists. I’m a 4rd year PhD student in the Peveler group developing a cross-reactive sensor array to detect liver fibrosis.
In my spare time I love playing volleyball, watching football and drinking beer
Hi, I’m Katy and I’m a postgrad rep. I’m a fourth year PhD student working on 3 phase heterogeneous catalysis. This is my third year on the committee.
If I’m not running about the building with a set of spanners I’m relaxing with a classic Agatha Christie book
Hi I’m Marilena I’m one of the second year reps.
My hobbies include binge watching big bang theory on Netflix
I can be known as a human golden retriever, and I will try to bring my artistic skills and jolly vibe to society.
I would say I like to eat a lot and explore different foods and restaurants. Also music, I play guitar.
As the 2nd year rep I want to make the Alchemist Society accessible for all! I believe everyone that enjoys chemistry (whether you study it or not) should come, we do very cool events :)).
Solving Rubik’s cubes and watching chemistry videos on YouTube.
