Executive Committee 2019-20
President of ChemSoc 2019/2020
Hi, I’m Jonas, a third-year chemist and your ChemSoc President for 2019/20. My job is to set a direction for the executive committee and lead its members to run our wide range of activities throughout the year. A year as ChemSoc Treasurer taught me a lot about the positive impact we can have as a society on the student body, but also showed me on what to improve. In the following year, I wish to improve the society according to our members’ feedback and introduce new ideas to make the most out of our time at Warwick. My main goal for the year is to set a direction to the society, leading to a more inclusive society that is well connected with industry, academics and the wider public. Hope to see you in our events this year!
Hi, I’m Louis and I am Vice President and Welfare Officer for ChemSoc. My job is to help Jonas and the rest of the exec as well as running our mentoring scheme for first year students. As welfare officer, I look out for each and every member of the society and I'm always around for a chat! I am a third-year chemist and when I’m not doing chemistry, I’m probably playing Pokémon Go or watching Netflix.
Hi, I'm Ed and I'm your new Treasurer. My job is to manage the society’s finances and seek new sponsorship. I am a third-year chemist and am looking forward to the upcoming year with the society. In my spare time you will often find me with a pint in my hand.
Hi, I’m Ally and I’m a second-year biochemist! My current role in the society is the Secretary and Equal Opportunities Officer, meaning that I organise and run the exec meetings, take minutes of said meetings and co-ordinate communication between all exec members. I also make sure that there is no discrimination in the society and am a friendly face to come to if anyone has any issues regarding this. Outside of ChemSoc I enjoy horse riding and playing my ukulele!
Hi, my name is Emily. As one of your Education Officers my main role is to run the weekly ChemCafé sessions, which provide an open and friendly place for chemistry students to ask questions about the course. There will also be talks held during these sessions relating to careers, placements and more. One of my other main roles is to organise student lead classes for undergraduates. These will be held before the exam season and act as another revision tool and give you some helpful tips and tricks about the exams. I’m a third-year chemist and in my free time I enjoy running and can often be found playing Pokémon Go with Louis.
Hi, I'm Mantas and I'm one of the two Education Officers. My role is to organise weekly ChemCafé events which feature talks, academic drop-in sessions or any other chemistry related activities. This year I aim to introduce a Q&A platform and a questions booklet, for your ease of learning. In the spare time I like programming and climbing, but any engineering related topic will definitely spark my interest!
Hi! My name is Leanne. I’m a third-year chemistry student and one of the two Outreach Officers for this academic year. Our role involves working with schools and clubs in the local area, to inspire young people with fun science demonstrations and interactive workshops. If this is of interest to you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, as there are always opportunities to get involved. In my spare time I love to cook – it’s like chemistry in the kitchen!
Hi, I'm Chloe and I'm one of your Social Secretaries for this year. My role within ChemSoc is to organise and run the social events for the society. These will be drinking and non-drinking events so anyone can get involved and have a good time with people who have the same passion as you for Chemistry. I met most of my friends during ChemSoc social events so maybe you'll find yours during one too!
Hi, I’m Alistair. My role as Social Secretary is to organise non-academic social events for the society to make sure we all get a chance to take some well-deserved breaks from study. We’ll be hosting a number of drinking and non-drinking events throughout the year, which are fantastic ways to get involved with the society and meet some new people.
Hi, I’m Matt. As one of your events officers my role involves organising ACORNS, a conference with the aim of guiding students through some amazing science research and showing that a science degree is well within reach for them. We also organise Research on the Rocks, showcasing some fantastic postgraduate speakers. I am an avid musician, love to do some electronics when I can and enjoy cycling.
Hi, I’m Evé! I have already done 2 degrees at Warwick but I couldn’t get enough of this place, so I am doing a PhD in electrochemical engineering in WMG. Although I am now technically an engineer, I am always a chemist at heart. I've always had a strong foot in outreach and public engagement here at Warwick. It therefore felt natural to take the role of events officer for ChemSoc, where my main job is to organise a conference for A-level students. I have also introduced a new event to the ChemSoc calendar called Research on the Rocks, which gives you an opportunity to hear about the research going on here while having a pint!
Hi, I'm Francesca and I'm one of the Ball Coordinators this year. My job is to organise ChemBall - a great night for students and staff alike. Along with Becky, I will be working hard to ensure that this is a night you'll never forget...or never remember as the case may be! We hope to continue the success of previous years, while also bringing some new ideas to the table. I'm a third year chemist and in my spare time I enjoy singing and dancing.
Hiya, my name is Becky and I am a second-year MChem student! I’ll be helping to assist the organisation of the annual chemistry ball along with Francesca. It’s definitely not a night to be missed! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. See you at the ball!
Hey guys, my name is Amman and I'm the current Sports and Charities Officer for ChemSoc. My job is to organise the various sporting activities that ChemSoc takes part in. I am also responsible for fundraising for various charities on behalf of the society. In my free time, I like to go to the gym, take part in sport and watch movies.

Hey, I’m Aaron-Jerome but you can call me AJ. I’m your Interdisciplinary Officer for this year. I aim to promote and provide events for members of the ChemSoc community who do not directly study Chemistry and bridge the gap between ChemSoc and other societies. I’m currently a second-year chemist and outside of the society, I enjoy a good night out and Lacrosse as part of UWLC. Feel free to message me about anything, be it Chemistry or University. I’m always here to help.
Hi, I’m Joe and I’m ChemSoc's Publicity Officer this year. My role mainly involves coordinating the society’s social media and website, as well as creating banners and posters for events throughout the year. I’m a third-year chemist, and I’m always happy to answer any questions you may have, work-related or not! Outside of university, you can usually find me playing D&D or tinkering with a computer.
