President

As SBR President, my role is to represent the SBR’s interests with college and collaborating with the JCR. I want to ensure that our community is welcoming, inclusive and fun, and a place where everybody feels at home. I am responsible for the smooth running of the SBR, listening to your ideas and concerns, and being your voice in college and beyond. Do get in touch with any questions, comments, or suggestions about any facet of College life.

Outside of the SBR, I am a third year Geophysics PhD student, imaging the subsurface beneath Southeast Asia using seismic tomography. When I am not on Stack Overflow, you can find me hitting the gym, making my favourite carrot cake or enjoying a G&T in one of Cambridge’s pubs.

Social and Dining Officer

Hi, I’m Jordi, a MEd (Education) student. As one of your Social and Dining Officers my job is to help organise and run a myriad of social events, from the infamous SBR parties to formal swaps with other colleges. Last year, in addition to being on the SBR committee, I was also Tennis B Team Captain, rowed for LMBC and was involved in St John’s Bee Keeping Society. My favourite place in college would be our Chapel and some sound advice for any new Johnian would be to get involved in as many clubs/societies as possible!
If you have any questions whatsoever (or any social SBR ideas!) please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

As a workaholic, third-year PhD student in Biophysical Chemistry, I am interested in gaining insights in protein-protein interactions and their association with diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.

As an Academic Officer, it is my privilege to enhance interdisciplinary exchange between the highly interesting and various areas graduate students at SJC are performing research in. In particular, I organise academic events such as Grad Talks and Graduate Conferences – both of which are accompanied by food and drinks!
