Executive Committee 2020-21
President of ChemSoc 2020/2021
Hi, I’m Ally, I'm a final year biochemist and your ChemSoc President for 2020/21. My job is to direct and support the rest of the exec in organising all the amazing events they plan throughout the year. I’m someone who really wants everyone at Warwick to have the best experience possible, and so my goal this year is to make ChemSoc an even more welcoming and supportive environment for all our members. Aside from ChemSoc I love going to the pub to play pool with my friends and messing around on my Switch (mainly on Zelda). I look forward to seeing you at our events this year!
Hi, I'm Emily and I am Vice President for ChemSoc. My role is to organise the mentoring scheme for first year students and help out the other exec when needed. I am starting an MRes this year in polymer chemistry but you will often see me at ChemCafé so come and say hi! When I'm not working I am often watching Netflix or reading a book!
Hi, I'm Matt, and I'm the treasurer for ChemSoc this year. My role involves managing the finances of the society and sponsorships. My favourite part of ChemSoc is our weekly ChemCafé, which provides a great space to socialise with other chemists, as well as get support with any academic work. Our annual ChemBall is also a particular highlight for me!
Hello. I am Vanessa, a first-year MChem student and the ChemSoc secretary for this year. I assist in the realisation of all our societal projects by coordinating communication between my fellow Exec members, as well as by undertaking our day-to-day administrative tasks. Additionally, I hold the position of Equal Opportunities Officer, wherein I ensure ChemSoc remains an inclusive space for all. If you ever have any concerns in this area, please do contact me. Outside of my degree I uphold a keen interest in environmental sustainability alongside a strong affinity for both rock-climbing and figure skating.
Hi! My name is Callum, and I am one of your two Education Officers. My role is to organise weekly ChemCafé sessions, providing a friendly environment where students can work together and support each other. ChemCafé also hosts events such as lab tours, placement information sessions and (closer to exams) academic drop-in sessions. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for details! One of my other responsibilities is to organise student-led revision classes to support exam preparation. With many helpful tips and tricks, these are a great revision tool! In my free time, I like to cook, draw and play video games. I also love making puns. Although these puns are usually dreadful, I keep hoping that one of them will be funny sooner or later…
Hi, my name is Rastislav, and I am an Education Officer.

I also organise student-led classes to help undergraduates revise and prepare for exams. I'm a second-year chemist, and other than doing chemistry, I enjoy playing computer games, read web novels and watching anime.
Hi! My name is Leanne. I’m a fourth-year chemistry student and one of the two Outreach Officers for this academic year.

Hey! My name's Charlotte Robb, I am a second year chemist and also your social secretary for this year! I wanted to be a social sec as I want to show people that chem kids can work hard AND play hard, and we certainly know how to have a good time! My aim is to bring more popularity to chemsoc social events and also to start doing in person events again (socially distanced of course!) as well as the current virtual ones. Chemistry is a hard degree and we all deserve some time off to have fun, and that is exactly what I plan on bringing to chemsoc! My favourite part about chemsoc is chemcafe as it is a great opportunity to do work together and get help where needed. In my free time I am a climate activist and loved going to protests (pre covid!). I also love partying and going to music festivals, fingers crossed we can do this again soon!
