Hola! I am a 3rd year PhD student at the Department of Chemistry working on artificial photosynthesis and I’ll also be the MCR President for the 2018-2019 academic year. My role involves working with both college and the rest of the MCR Committee to ensure you have the best possible student experience at Hughes Hall. This includes organising all kinds of events throughout the year and acting as a student representative to influence college policies. Feel free to e-mail me, message me on Facebook, or come to say hello at any events!

Treasurer: Maxim Kuvshinov

Maxim Kuvshinov

Hello, I’m Maxim, a third year PhD Student in Engineering. As a treasurer, my role is mainly administrative consisting of looking after the MCR finances and making sure we are sticking to our budget. This year I hope to work closely with many of our MCR officers to help organise numerous events throughout the college by providing optimal financial support. One of my favourite things in Hughes is talking to students from various backgrounds and disciplines and listening to their suggestions with regards to college life. With an optimised budget I am hoping to be able to bring those ideas to life and to increase the number of social events throughout the year in order to create an even more thriving community within Hughes Hall. If you would like to know any more by more or you have any suggestions, please feel free to get in touch!
