Committee

President: Alma Chapet–Batlle (She/Her/Hers)

Hi, I’m Alma! As MCR President, my role is to ensure that things run smoothly, and to advocate on behalf of students with the college. I’m reading for a DPhil in Synthetic Biology, trying to create a DNA computer in the Department of Physics. When I am not pipetting tiny amounts of clear liquid into small tubes and hoping for the best, I’m often somewhere around the college or watching stupid shows on Netflix from my couch.

As president of the MCR you can email me if you have any queries/issues about the MCR.

Secretary: Callum Bucklow

I’m Callum, the MCR secretary. I organise the administration of the MCR, which includes adherence to the MCR constitution and various other administration tasks. I am a DPhil student on the BBSRC Interdisciplinary Biosciences DTP. My primary interest is in the intersection of evolutionary and developmental biology. When I’m not in the lab, I am likely watching Star Trek or playing strategy games (my favourite is currently Stellaris).

As the MCR secretary you can email me if you have motions for MCR general meetings, queries about MCR elections, the constitution or distributing info via the MCR newsletter.

Email Callum

Treasurer: Sida Wang

Hi, I am Sida, your treasurer at Corpus MCR! I am currently reading for DPhil in physical and theoretical chemistry (staring at particles). I love monster munch as well!! 

As MCR treasurer you can email me if you have queries about MCR fees, requests for reimbursement for MCR expenses or queries about the MCR budget.

Equality & Diversity Officer: Zeinab Ali (She/Her/Hers)

Hi, I’m Zeinab! As the Diversity & Inclusion Officer, I will ensure that the MCR is a truly inclusive space for everyone. This means increasing awareness of issues affecting different underrepresented groups within our community. I will oversee and promote events that will celebrate the diverse backgrounds found within Corpus.

If I’m not stuck in the lab, you can find me going on long walks and baking! Always available to chat so drop me an email/message!

As the MCR’s equality and diversity officer you can email me if you have queries about Equality & Diversity in the MCR.

Female Welfare Officer: Ana Rita Faria

I am Rita and I am your female welfare officer at Corpus this year. I am a biomedical engineer doing a DPhil in Biochemistry. When I’m not at work, I enjoy going for walks during the sunny days that Oxford has to offer, hiking, climbing, and finding new places to eat out (good old pre-covid days). If you need any help with the welfare system or want to have a chat, just drop me a message. 

As the MCR’s female welfare officer you can email me if you have any welfare questions, if the welfare cupboard needs restocking or if you want someone in the college to be sent chocolate.

Entertainments Officer: Angela Gehrckens (She/Her/Hers)

Hi, I’m Angela, one of your entertainment officers! 

I’m a DPhil student doing Physical and Theoretical Chemistry and you’d usually find 

me out and about, cycling, reading in the sun or hanging out in the MCR (would these times only be considered normal…).

Email Angela

Entertainments Officer: Kate Farrow (She/Her/Hers)

Hi, I’m Kate, and I’m the other social secretary for the MCR. I’m currently reading for a DPhil in Criminology. When I’m not in the MCR (which is unusual), I can usually be found in the library scrolling through memes on my phone, or eating pickled onion monster munch elsewhere in the college.
