President_JonKaixo! I am Jon Ostolaza, a 2nd year Basque PhD student in Chemical Engineering and your MCR President until March 2022. My research focuses on scaling up the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks for drug delivery applications. When I am not doing MCR work, you can find me in the lab with my chemicals, playing tennis at oxford road, swimming at parkers piece, or just walking around Fitz or around town. I also love a good book and trashy rom coms!

My role is all about promoting the amazingly diverse research of the MCR community at Fitz!

Hi guys!  I’m Rhydian, one of your welfare officers for this year. I’m an MPhil Sociology student and have really enjoyed getting settled into the Fitz community. I’m from Wales, and love surfing, good music, and being in the outdoors. As your welfare officer, I’m excited to work with you and the MCR committee to make your time at Fitz as enjoyable and safe as possible. Along with Tyra, I’m eager to get to know as many of you as possible in the next few weeks – so do make sure to come to our Welfare Coffee Mornings at the MCR every other Sunday! Can’t wait to see you around 😊

Social_AnaHi everyone! My name is Ana and this year I will be one of the social secretaries at Fitz. I am currently doing an MPhil in Genetics, more specifically in epigenetics in C. elegans (a little worm). When I am not in the lab taking care of my worms I like to cook (especially Spanish food), play board games and sing. Moreover, this year I have taken up rowing so you will probably see me around the boat house. I really think that the most important thing as a social sec is organising events that YOU like, so feel free to talk to me anytime and let me know your ideas!!
