As the president of CSS, I oversee and manage the committee and the society. I also engage in the recreational sport of watching paint dry, play video games, hear grass grow, and laugh at the futility of time.
I'm Tom, a 2nd year PhD student here at the uni. I did my BSc here too, and I've been involved with CSS since my first year, and was president from 2016 to 2019 - I'm the secretary this year, and looking forward to meeting y'all! 🎉
As Treasurer, I look after the finances of our society, ensuring every transaction is made by the book. Some would say the computer science building is my second home as people can often find me in the labs at unusual hours.
My job within the committee is to help the society run smoothly, so I do lots of odd jobs, like work on this website. When not on CSS business, I'm taking part in hackathons across the UK, hacking with AFNOM, or spending too much time on assorted projects.
As CSS socials rep, I ensure that social events occur frequently and that these events are designed around our members. When I’m not organising events, I’m often found wasting my time on configs.
Hi I’m selma, international rep for CSS. My goal is to make sure international CS students feel at home here! Feel free to hit me up if you need help settling in 🙂
Special Events Rep
As Special Events rep, I'm responsible for making sure that all big CSS events during the year, such as the CSS ball, are the best they can be. Outside CSS I enjoy dancing and playing in a steel drum orchestra.
Diversity and Inclusivity Rep
I’m the Diversity, Inclusivity and Equality Representative, or as I like to be called, the DIE rep for CSS. When I’m not doing nerdy comp sci stuff, I’m usually binge watching shows or eating carrots from Tesco.
Within the committee I organise any sporting events, not forgetting e-sports. In my free time I play ice hockey, cycle and do and any other sports I fit in. I also love a host of classic and recent video games which I can't wait to bring to CSS.
Hi. I'm Likkan, I'm a third year undergrad. I'm the publicity rep so my job is to make all the posters and post on social media. Other things I do outside of CSS are help organise events like HackTheMidlands and I'm also a student ambassador for the department
I'm the committee's link to the world of industry, ensuring that the society is relevant and on top of changes. I also represents the students away in industry. In my own time, I play guitar and enjoy some casual game development.
First Year Rep
Hi! My name is Valeria and my goal is to make sure that first-year students are well informed and involved in all the opportunities out there in CS and having their best time at university. Outside CSS I like participating in programming contests, hackathons and watching bachata dancing.
Post-Graduate (Research) Rep
I'm Jacqui, the president of CSS! My role is to manage the society and committee, as well as represent CSS at the guild. When I'm not stressing out over responsibilities and deadlines, I spend a lot of my time playing RPGs and drinking iced lemon tea.
Hey! I'm a 3rd year PhD student in the School 💖 This year, I'm serving as your Secretary, and have been on the committee for five (😱) years now. I love cats, baking, gin, board games, and a boatload of other stuff - feel free to come and have a chat.
Hi I’m Jake and this academic year I will be managing the societies finances. I am going into my 4th year and plan to spend it playing DnD, drinking, and completing the occasional assignment. I look forward to a year full of interesting events hosted by this society.
Hi everyone! My role this year is to make sure that all events run smoothly and that everyone feels included in our computer science community. I love organising events and networking. I am always looking for personal development and career opportunities, so if you are keen on talking about internships, CVs or interview prepping, I would love to help you!
Hi, I'm Rob. It’s my job to make sure you have as much fun as possible by running social events and meetups! This year, I want more people coming to these. In the unlikely event that you can’t find me in the Sloman lounge or in the labs, I’m probably either playing guitar or running along the canals.
International Student Rep
I know all about the struggles of being an international student — like finding friends, understanding the culture, and homesickness. I'm here to help you make friends and to make everyone feel like they belong in our community. In my free time, I love sports, fashion design and talking about Elon Musk!
Special Events Rep
I ensure that all of our big social events (like the CSS Ball and the Christmas meal) run smoothly and that everyone has a good time. I hope to make all of our events special throughout the year! In my spare time, I drink wine and fence as part of the University's fencing team (sometimes concurrently).
Diversity, Equality and Inclusivity Rep
My role is to make everyone feel included and represented at all our events, no matter their background. I also help arrange our international events, making sure we offer a diverse set of activities for our whole community. Aside from this, I mostly waste time by watching horror movies and reading murder mysteries. Feel free to contact me with any suggestions or concerns!
I encourage everyone (regardless of your level or experience) to take part in our sports and e-sports events! One of my goals this year is to increase the amount of people involved in e-sports. When time allows, I love to go to the gym, read books and play video games.
I’m responsible for promoting all of our wonderful events and maintaining this website! In my spare time, I enjoy photography, playing tennis, and listening to music.
I'm a fourth year undergrade on my Year in Industry at Kainos. As our Industrial Liaison, I bring industry and careers events to the society. Outside of CSS, I help organise events like HackTheMidlands and I'm also a student ambassador for the department.
First Year Rep
Hello World! I'm Rhys, a first year degree apprentice and your First Year Rep. I enjoy anything to do with CS and many other things - from programming to cycling (sometimes I do both 😉). I'll be making sure that you feel welcomed as a first year, and that CSS is a cool place for you. Feel free to contact me and I'll be sure to get back to you. 😇
Post-Graduate (Research) Rep
My job this year is to get more PhD and MRes students involved in CSS events. My research is in Cyber Security, focusing on the (in)security of Bluetooth. Outside of that, I enjoy competing in CTF competitions and Rock Climbing. I was the CSS PGT rep during my MSc back in 2016/17, then I went to work for a few years (and now I'm back)!
