Here’s a chance to know the faces and names that will be working hard to bring you fantastic events all year. Get in touch with the committee through firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or ideas.
President – Jaime Robb
Hey! I’m Jaime Robb, a third year Biomedical Engineering student from Scotland. I was elected WiSTEM President after being the Engineering Convener on committee last year. Being a part of WiSTEM since day one has given me a personal connection to the society. Combining my love for all things STEM and challenging the inequalities of the world I am determined to lead the society successfully. For me, WiSTEM is about creating a network of females within STEM that can support and celebrate each other and inspire the next generation. It’s important the society is open and welcoming to everyone, we can’t progress without a fair representative discussion. I’m so honoured and excited to be a part of this society and hope everyone enjoys and benefits from the year ahead.
Secretary – Maggie Ivanova
I am Maggie Ivanova and I am a 3rd year Biomedical Engineering student. I have been a member of WiSTEM last year, and I was elected to be the Secretary of the society this year. I am really excited to be actively involved in the organization and promotion of WiSTEM within the university, as I would like to share my passion for STEM with others. I am here to help with any questions about the society or the events planned.
Treasurer – Kirsty Woodall
Hello, my name is Kirsty Woodall and I’m in my final year of Molecular and Cellular Biology. I was elected WiSTEM Treasurer after previously participating as a Science Convenor. My duty is to organise funding for the society so we can continue to provide informative (and very fun) events for our members. One of our goals is to maintain a stream of information on work placements, conferences and graduate opportunities so our members are never left outside the loop. We will also continue to scrutinise inequality in STEM, and bring our members in close contact with experts in all fields. Even with our emphasis on female inequality in STEM, we desire all to join. I am very proud to be accepted as part of this society, and continue to support all those who require it. My best, Kirsty.

Publicity Convener – Ailish O’Sullivan
Hi, I’m Ailish and I’m currently a 3rd year Genetics student. I became a member of wiSTEM this year and was elected as publicity convenor. I have so far really enjoyed my time within the society and as a committee member. This is a great society providing links between the individual STEM subjects as well as connecting women within this field. I feel the society is extremely important for the voices of women in STEM, especially with inspiring women to strive further in their careers and improve the prospects for future generations. I am looking forward to what the society has to offer this year and attend the many exciting events they have lined up to inspire me within my course.
Events Convener – Emily Adam
