Jessica Dring-Morris

President

Hello everyone. My name is Jess, and I am your MatSoc 21/22 President! Over the past three years MatSoc has become one of my favourite parts of being an Imperial student. Heading into my final year, I am excited to see how we will continue grow and develop as a society as I aim to uphold our current traditions as well as bring some new ideas into the community.


Heading into next year one of my main aims is to reintegrate our year groups. Having met a huge total of three freshers (all of whom are my MatSoc children), due to restrictions last year, I really want to prioritise the reintegration of our department. Another of my aims is to relight the spark that is the Geology/Materials rivalry! When I was in first year, Hill Cup (the Geology v Materials varsity) was one of the highlights of my year. We went Paintballing, Curling and had a very creative Bake-Off event. This was an event which brought our department together so I definitely want to bring this back!

Yash Dwivedi

Vice President

Hi I'm Yash, a third year and your new Vice President for the 21/22 academic year.


My main role for the year is to oversee the exciting events that happen and maintain our strong relationships, both with industry and the department. This will involve the continuation of the 'Beyond University' lecture series, an informative and diverse careers fair, many exciting industry visits and a tour abroad!

Treasurer

As treasurer, my job is to coordinate the society’s finances and keep on top of the flow of funds in and out of the MatSoc account. My aim is ensure that MatSoc deliver their pre-pandemic slew of unmissable events and trips, at massively subsidised prices. Some of my top priorities for the year are to maintain clear communication within the committee, be transparent about the use of the society's funds, and making sure there is plenty of money left over at the end of year to run the MatSoc Tour!

Adam Wu

Secretary

Hi, I’m Adam and I’ll be your MatSoc Secretary over the next year. 

As secretary, my role involves helping my fellow committee members with their responsibilities and making sure everything in the society runs smoothly - be that with meetings, formal dinners and career events. Perhaps equally as exciting, I’m also in charge of MatSoc Merch, and it’s my job to ensure that all of our society members are dressed to impress!

Abhinav Rajendran

Events Officer

Hi everyone, I'm Abhi and I'm going to be your MatSoc events officer!

My job is to ensure that we have an action-packed, event-filled calendar right the way through the year. This will be made up of annual favourites like Mums & Dads all the way to Christmas Curry and Hill Cup Paintballing! Definitely get in touch with me if you have any ideas for new events and I'll do my best to incorporate them into the calendar!

I look forward to finally meeting some of you in person and redeveloping my social skills with you all over the coming year!

Hi, I'm Adam. I'll be Matsoc's publicity and magazine officers this year. I love writing and you'll often find me browsing classical literature. As well as being reader I'm also a big fan of badminton and corrosion. If you couldn't tell I also am a big stoke city fan, up the potters.

Shreya Mistry

Sponsorship Officer

Hi, I’m Shreya and I am the incoming Sponsorship Officer. My role is to liaise with companies and form connections so the society can hold events and members can see where this degree could take them. I’m excited to reach out to companies in new sectors as well as keep the amazing sponsors we already have. I also hope to fund more in-person events after Covid-19 cut that short. If you have any suggestions about companies you want to network with or areas we should look into, feel free to get in touch with me!
