The MCR Committee

The MCR Committee exists to uphold the MCR constitution. They do this by getting involved with everything from arranging dinners and events to attending meetings to ensure that the College and University listen to what you have to say. The committee is made up of members from the current MCR community.

Vice-President

Klara Kulenkampff

CRSID - kk615

Hi! I’m Klara from Dusseldorf, Germany and I’m a first year PhD student in the Chemistry Department researching about Alzheimer’s disease. In Cambridge I enjoy playing tennis, horse-riding and listening to talks about various topics. As a vice president I’m mainly supporting Tiago in his role, but I’m also open for any suggestions you have regarding our MCR community. I’m looking forward to seeing you all at a lot of events this year!

Sports Officer

Matthew Philpott

CRSID - map81

I’m Matt and I’m currently in my first year of my PhD in Biomedical Materials Science. I enjoy travelling, skiing and good food. I’m also a keen rower, but generally enjoy a wide range of sports. The college has a lot to offer when it comes to sport so I look forward to helping you discover them or even creating new opportunities to get involved with! If you have any questions then feel free to ask.

Treasurer

Tomos Reed

CRSID - tlr23

Tomos Reed is a Church of England ordinand, trainee priest, studying at Emmanuel College and Westcott House on Jesus Lane. This is his second time studying at Emmanuel. In his first incarnation, many, many years ago, he read Physics and Rowing. He recently completed the Gilmore-Fraleigh personality style profile test which identified him as “blue”, suggesting that his calling to spreadsheets is as realistic and informed as his vocation to Christian ministry. He therefore hopes to be a competent MCR treasurer. When you meet him in person he presents as a great deal less facetious than this paragraph might suggest. He is delighted to be back at Emmanuel and is very much looking forward to the possibility of being a member of the MCR Committee.
