About the MCR

The MCR committee looks after the interests of the graduate community at Magdalene, organises social events, and maintains various facilities and services – including our extensive movie and games collection. The President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer are elected each year in accordance with our constitution.

If you’re looking to send an e-mail to any of the committee members, then read on below or see our quick contact list. Use the e-mail prefix which follows each name, and add ‘@magd.cam.ac.uk’. To send to the entire committee, use magd-mcr-comm as a prefix – but please refrain from doing so for requests to add items to our twitter bulletin, please send to the MCR president directly.

I’m heading into the final year of my PhD in Plant Science, researching genetic disease interactions in wheat, based at NIAB (National Institute of Agricultural Botany). As your former president (2017/18) and treasurer (2016/17), I am here to advise and guide the MCR committee, as well as being an extra pair of hands.
