My role as President is to lead the SBR Committee and, alongside the vice-Presidents, be the link between graduate students and College. I‘m a member of committees at college and university levels, and also attend College Council. When I’m not being the SBR President, I’m working on a PhD in History. My project examines rituals and religions at sea in the medieval Mediterranean, or, as a Physicist once put it, ‘pirate gods’.
Hi I’m Aryan and I’m a 5th year Medic. As VP I work with the rest of the committee to organise some great social and welfare events as well as representing the graduate community, alongside the president, in various meetings.
Hello! I’m a PhD student in the Department of Genetics looking at mitochondria and mitochondrial DNA repair. I’m co-Vice President on the SBR committee which means I help out with various aspects of the SBR. I’m very involved in organising the SBR events, so I hope to see you at many!
I’m a second-year PhD student working on medieval Irish literature. As the academic officer, I organise opportunities for academic discussion within the SBR, including the ‘Lightning Talks’ and the annual SBR conference.
Hey, I am Constantin and one of the social officers of the SBR, which involves organising dining swaps with other colleges, SBR parties, and other social events throughout the year. I am a second year PhD student in Chemistry working on materials for artificial photosynthesis. In my free time, I am always keen for a good match of football. Feel free to contact me about any social events or swaps.
Hey, I’m Madi a 5th Year Medic and I am part of the social and dining team. My job involves organising dining swaps with other colleges, SBR parties, and other social events throughout the year. If you have any ideas of social activities or swaps you would like us to consider then please let me know. Looking forward to seeing many of you at the events!
I’m part of the social and dining team, which involves organising dining swaps with other colleges, SBR parties, and other social events throughout the year.
I’m passionate about three fields that I believe mainly govern our world: business, science, and politics – and hope to work at their intersection. Before Cambridge, I earned a B.S. in Bioengineering from Clemson University in South Carolina, USA and an MSc in Global Affairs from Tsinghua University in China as a Schwarzman Scholar. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Oncology at the University of Cambridge – with research focused on lung cancer drug development. Outside of studying, I love traveling, trying new foods (swaps, anyone?), dancing, drinking coffee with friends, and playing sports, like rugby and basketball for St. John’s and American football for Cambridge University!
I am a first-year PhD student studying post-humanism and new materialism in texts for children at the Faculty of Education’s Centre for Research on Children’s Literature.
My name is Chantelle and I’m a 5th year medical student. As part of your welfare team, my role is make sure you feel involved within John’s and the SBR, and I’m here if you ever need anyone to talk to. We will also organise some amazing events for you all to enjoy and ensure you have some wonderful memories of your time here!
I’m a 5th year medical student, so have been at St John’s for 5 years now. I am one of the welfare reps on the committee, so it’s my job to look out for how everyone is doing, and to organise welfare events that hopefully everyone will enjoy.
Hi I’m Nordin, a first year PhD student in Materials Science and Metallurgy. I’m the communication officer for the SBR! My job is to organise the buddy system, send weekly emails about events/updates within St John’s, and run the SBR Instagram. I work closely with the St John’s communication and assist them with the college Instagram page. Follow the Instagram on @samuelsroom!
I’m a PhD candidate in social anthropology, analysing the relationship between mortuary rituals and citizenship. I joined the SBR in Michaelmas 2018.
As Environmental Officer I am responsible for implementing college environmental policies. In practice this means sending emails about recycling, coordinating student gardening, and increasing the college’s sustainability training & knowledge.
I am an MPhil student in Engineering for Sustainable Development, so I spend most of my time trying to brainstorm ways to avert impending climate doom. If you have any ideas to make the college more sustainable let me know!

As Environmental Officer, I am responsible for the care of Mother Earth. I do so by sending passive aggressive emails about recycling, meeting with college to improve sustainability and holding events about newts. I am a third year PhD student in Geography, which means I’m unusually pessimistic about our imminent, fiery doom. My hobbies consist primarily of preparing for the inevitable apocalypse by learning and practicing primitive farming methods in my back garden, as well as praying to ancient, long-forsaken gods in the hope that they’ll take us back. I also play the banjo.
