Shamin Tahasildar
My name is Shamin Tahasildar; I am a 2nd year MSci Biochemistry student. I'm currently serving as the society’s Interim Communications Officer.
I believe that students from all disciplines should have the opportunity to explore the field of academia and research; yet many departments outside of “traditional” research subjects inadequately provide such openings.
Through the role of Communication Officer, I will ensure students from all faculties can access these opportunities by contacting Course Representatives and relevant Societies for mutually beneficial collaborations. Furthermore, outreach will be enhanced by establishing a society presence on LinkedIn, which will provide society members networking opportunities with guest speakers. This will be done through working with fellow committee members to maximise our exposure. I believe this is especially important during the current global climate.
I also aim to improve exposure and appreciation to scientific literature in general, which I have begun by introducing featured articles in the weekly newsletter. Hopefully you’ve received such newsletters from me in recent times and learnt something new!
In addition to outreach initiatives, I intend to improve the engagement with current students by including avenues for feedback in our newsletters, as this shapes the growth of the society.
I hope I have demonstrated how I can contribute to the society and look forward to making my ideas a reality. Thank you!

Hi everyone! I'm a second year Population Health Sciences with Data Science student and am nominating myself to serve as the Communications Officer for the UCL Review. As a student who has had experience both within and outside of my course evaluating journal articles, conducting literature reviews, and performing statistical analyses, I am well acquainted with the processes involved with writing, peer-reviewing, and publishing academic journal articles and wish to pursue academia in the future. As such, I would like to involve myself with the UCL Review team to help and inspire other students who wish to do the same; providing guidance to students writing articles for the journal, and organising workshops to help facilitate this.

If elected, I would strive to grow the society further through reaching out to a greater number of research departments and academics from various disciplines across UCL to expand the number of opportunities for students to develop their research and writing skills, accommodating students with varying interests, whilst also growing the society’s reach to a greater number of students across the university.

Having served in various principal officer and outreach roles at UCL, I have extensive experience managing communication channels for societies; including sending out emails and monthly newsletters, as well as contacting third parties for partnerships and collaborations for new initiatives, and hope to do the same for the society if elected.
