Heya! I’m Dennis and I am a second year PhD candidate studying synthetic chemistry. I am the Postgraduate Students Representative for both the Science Union and the Postgraduate Students Association. I’m here to advocate for you if you have any concerns regarding your research, grades, supervisors, general wellbeing… all that fun stuff! When I’m not in my lab (which is rare) I like to kitesurf and read good fiction novels. So if you need someone to talk things over with, drop me a line.
Hey everyone I’m Peggy Atkinson, your External Affairs Vice President. I’ve got some ideas in 2017 to try help you network your way from the Science Union to a career that’s more fulfilling than eight hour shifts at your local coffee shop, Woolworths or swimming pool. I also will be working with sponsors and supporters of the Science Union to keep making everything wonderful that we do happen and everything that we don’t do yet happen too. If you have no musical ability (I consider the ability to click and whistle as musical) then come have a chat with me and we’ll get along just fine, and maybe talk some physics since I’m a second year Bachelor of Science student, majoring in Physics and Maths.
Ahoy hoy!!! I'm Michael, a fourth year engineering student and the Careers Officer of the Science Union. My role on committee consists of assisting our lovely External Affairs VP (Meg) wherever possible and organising careers based events. I'm a Virgo, hate liquorice with a passion, am 6'5'' and can cook up a mean risotto. If you have any questions or simply want to have a chat, don't hesitate to get in contact with me.
Hiya guys, I’m Himanshi! I am a third year student with a major in Engineering Science and a minor in Finance, and I hope to pursue a Masters in Mechanical Engineering after my undergrad.

Hey, my name is Fergus and I'm the Social Vice President for 2017. You'll be given the opportunity to marvel at any work we do by coming along to all of Science Union's fantastic social events! I'm 19, blond hair, blue eyes, I like long walks on the beach, getting caught in the rain, and having baby aliens burst out of others' chests. I have two parents and two legs. I use both of them to play soccer, cricket and beach volleyball (although not well at all). I like music, especially EMAS, I love them... pinapple goes on pizza, milk is for drinking, egg and beetroot both go in burgers.
Hi I'm Becky - A third year microbiology and immunology student, and cliché med hopeful. I hold the supremely essential position of social officer and I am here to help bring you some of the best darn events your little eyeballs have ever witnessed. If you wish to partake in extended conversations regarding Naegleria fowleri infections, have a golden retriever and want to go on a doggy play-date, or have any questions/ideas regarding the Science Union social portfolio, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org - the amount of puns you use is inversely proportional to the time I will take to reply.
Hey guys, I'm Alex, and as a fifth year it has been a while since I have been stressed about first year issues. However in my time at University I have spent every year on Science Union and my time at university would not have been anywhere near as enjoyable without being involved with the club. This has resulted in me wanting to run events for first years to get them involved and have the positive experiences that I have had! If you are a first year (or indeed just looking for a fun time) I would highly recommend coming down to our events.
Hey hey! I’m Hayden! I’m a third year chemistry and biochemistry student, and I’m one of the Science Union orientation directors for 2017! That means you’ll probably see me around a lot at the start of the year, especially if you’re a fresher, and for the most part I’m just here to help you get the most out of uni life right from the beginning. Whether that’s pointing you in the right direction for any issues you might be facing, or helping you get involved in the campus culture and the number of events that are run for students all through the year. So if you have any questions regarding your start at UWA, feel free to stop me on campus or just flick me a message!
Hi, my name is Cassie and I am a third year pharmacology and biochemistry student. This year, my role is to organise and run all competitions held by Science Union.

Hey I'm Asha, I'm going into my masters in biotechnology and I'm the welfare VP this year. Last year I was the volunteering coordinator so I'm all about helping others *cue halo*. Essentially, the welfare portfolio works to make sure every student feels welcome and cared for at university, by looking after their mental and physical health and trying to solve issues such as discrimination. This matters strongly to me as someone who has struggled with mental health in the past. If you are a student reading this that has any issues, please don't hesitate to reach out me by email, or say hi if you see me around campus.
Hey, I’m Sam and I’m a second year biomedical science student.

If you have any queries about the support offered at UWA or what Science Union’s welfare team can do for you, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to help

Hey what's up guys, Caleb here. I'm a second year geology and physics student. I'm still not sure what I'll do when (if ever) I finish my degree. My position on the science union committee is an OCM, which stands for 'Ordinary Committee Member.' This means I lift things when they need lifting, and essentially help out when needed. I strive for everyone involved with Science Union to savour a savvy, solemn, sour, salty and sassy experience while at UWA.

HEY! I'm Olivia and I'm a first year studying Medical Science and Music. As a first year representative, my role is to participate in all the jobs and activities the committee does and try and help out where I can. If I'm not replying to your messages or lurking in a group chat, it's because I'm in an orchestra rehearsal or rocking out to a punk rock karaoke track with my bass guitar by myself in my living room. If you want to come jam with me because you think that punk rock is so so so much better than the pathetic excuse for music on the radio today, send me a facebook message or email me at email@example.com.
Hi I'm Aidan, I'm studying medical sciences and philosophy with aspirations to go into surgery in the future. I'm a fresher rep for science union, although I honestly couldn't tell you with certainty what that means or entails at this stage. For now I'm doing my best to ensure the best interests of other first years are fairly represented and respected by the science union committee and helping out with event set up and publicity.
HEY! I'm Kaleigh Spithoven, a first year majoring in Anatomy and Human biology. It is my job, as one of your fresher representatives, to help out at events and make sure y'all feel welcomed into the Science union fam!
