Over the past two years, I have worked relentlessly as a student rep to make the issues of my peers heard and to improve the conditions for taught and research students at our department.

Now it is time to take it to the faculty.

I will fight for:

1. Fair pay for all PGTAs and RAs across all departments.

2. A better standard of working conditions for all.

3. Less bureaucracy in communication with departments and faculty.

4. A more active and connected faculty with more support for PhD societies.

5. Better and faster support for all in research and personal life.

I promise you that if you vote for me, I will always have an open ear for whatever issue you might have and I will help you to improve the conditions for all research students at the faculty permanently. I want to bring this faculty closer together and I want students from all departments to feel like they are part of it.

I know the issues that this faculty has and with your vote, I will tackle them over the coming year.

I am standing to be your Postgraduate Research Representative because I believe that the key to having a successful doctoral program does not lie only in your research, but in supporting your peers, your community, and your faculty.

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. Before coming to UCL, I undertook my MSc and BComp in Computer Science at Queen's University in Canada. There, I served as President and Vice President of my department's student associations. Here, constant communication with administrators and faculty was key to enacting positive change for students.

Student positions need to be held by determined people who take pride in making changes that benefit all students - this can only be done by making myself available to you and by hearing your concerns. As such, I will endeavour to make your voices heard in faculty meetings in order to ensure that what you want as students, is what you get.

Though new to UCL, I am no stranger to navigating university administration. I look forward to representing you at the faculty level while working to make academia and the life of doctoral students easier, more welcoming, inclusive, and accessible.
