Committee Rob Parker President Hi! My name’s Rob Parker and I’m a third year maths & stats student at Newcastle, and I’m this year’s Mathsoc President! I’ve really enjoyed my time at Newcastle so far and MathSoc is a really big part of that, be it from the trips abroad, summer balls or weekly socials there’s always something exciting to do with MathSoc! This year I’m trying to promote positive mental health and blood donation within the society, as ways of looking after ourselves and each other, and continuing to support The People’s Kitchen with our ongoing fundraising activities. I hope to see you at one of our many events this year, and if you have any questions feel free to email me and I can answer anything you’re curious about! Johanna Murray Vice President Hi I’m Johanna, I’m a 3rd year maths student from Leeds. In my first year I really enjoyed playing for the MathSoc netball team ‘Charlie’s Angles’ but I was too scared to go to any of the society socials. Once I got over my fear in second year I realised it was a great way to meet new friends and no one was even half as intimidating as I thought they’d be! My hobbies outside of the society are playing cricket, going to pub quizzes (I’ve yet to win one but I live in hope) and relaxing with my friends in spoons. If you’ve got any questions about anything related to the society or just uni in general feel free to send me an email or catch me after a lecture. Sarah Tait Secretary Hi, my name is Sarah and I’m a third year BSc Mathematics student, North East gal, and I’m this year’s MathSoc Secretary! I’ve been a dedicated member of the society since my first year by attending the socials and the trips abroad and it really is one happy family. I love going out and having fun and I am a very positive and sociable person, and if there are any questions or queries you have about MathSoc, or anything in general about uni life I am more than happy to answer anything! Aiden McCall Treasurer Hi! I’m Aiden, a 3rd year MMath student and your MathSoc Treasurer! Having joined the society in Freshers, I loved the bar crawls and the socials in MathSoc. First year was great but last year was when I really got involved, and I love the community that the society creates! My role within the society is Treasurer which means I’ll be keeping an eye on all the money in the society and subsidising as many events as possible throughout the year! Everyone on committee is incredibly approachable, if you have any questions feel free to shoot me an email. If I don’t see you in the Herschel, you can find me in Soho with a treb, Sinners with a treb and possibly the Robbo (with a treb) Jo Edwards Sponsorship Rep Hello, I’m your sponsorship rep for this year! I’ll be posting exciting grad job and internship opportunities throughout the year from one of our sponsors, so make sure you keep an eye on the MathSoc page for more info! Molly Sands Publicity Officer Hi, I’m Molly, and I’m this year’s Publicity Officer I am here just for my love of the society and maths. If I’m not talking about maths I’m probably talking about Norfolk and if you know where that is we can already be friends! I love Newcastle and MathSoc and cannot wait to let you know about the fun events we have planned and to share all the memories we make this year with you for you remember (even when you may not want to remember). I’m always on my phone so if you need anything pop me an email – doesn’t have to be Maths related (and I probably can’t do your homework for you as I won’t understand it anyways). Cameron Trotter Social Secretary & Webmaster Hi! I’m Cameron, a PhD student within the Cloud Computing for Big Data CDT, and I am one of the Social Secretaries along with Tom! We are always looking for people to get involved with our socials, whether that be members coming along or companies wanting to run a social with us. I also maintain this website so contact me for anything related to that. My hobbies include mixology, partaking in pub quizzes, and playing HQ Trivia religiously even though I have never yet won. Tom Lowe Social Secretary Hi, I’m Tom, a 2nd year PhD student. This is my 6th year at Newcastle and my 5th year as part of the MathSoc committee, having previously been the Treasurer, Publicity officer and had roles on the General Committee, so you could say I’m quite passionate about the society! I’m a very sociable person, and am always up for a drink and a laugh. When I’m not doing maths or trying to conduct organised fun, I dabble in music, running, and consistently getting beaten at video games.
