Adam’s from Guernsey and will likely mention it several times if you engage him in conversation (he’s also the MCR President but that’s of secondary importance here). When not ranting about tax evasion or Prêt subscriptions, he can be found in the MCR channeling his alter ego as Luigi on Mariokart or participating in a Ceilidh.
Theo can often be found in the blue room “smashing noobs” at Mario Kart. His undergraduate was in Philosophy and Psychology, and although his research is now primarily within bioethics and moral theory, his tactics on Rainbow Road are anything but ethical. Theo’s always eager for a race or a chat about any area of philosophy!
Seda is a third-year DPhil student specialising in argument structure alternations at the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. She was a Family Rep, Welfare Officer, and the MCR's first Permanent Welfare Officer (figure that out)! Although she is the Treasurer now, will still be available as the college peer supporter to anyone who wishes to have a confidential chat.
Kacper is a 4th year biologist in Pembroke. His special talents include: wild mushroom foraging (it will be a BOP theme), navigating public transport during holidays with friends (it will be a BOP theme) and being unwillingly pulled to live in GAB for the last 3 years (will it be a BOP theme?)
Welfare Officer & Access Officer
When Prakriti is not doing an MPhil. in Development Studies (and it is not doing her back and then some!), she can be found fulfilling her responsibilities 1) as a dog mother and 2) of ensuring that Rafi is functional enough to be your Welfare Representative.
Amy is in her final year studying Law at Pembroke, after completing a BA in History at the Other Place. She can often be found at the top of a mountain, knitting, or drinking too much coffee (frequently simultaneously). Talk to her about speculative fiction or craft cocktails!
Pembroke is celebrating its 400th anniversary and Alex has been here almost as long; previously an undergrad here, Alex is a Pembroke loyalist and a regular at the MCR. Now in his second year of a Biochemistry DPhil, Alex is researching mRNA vaccines and has a *completely* unrelated side project working on microchip-enabled mind control. If you have a few hours to spare, ask Alex about music (from classical to hard rock) or tennis. Don’t ask about his stay in the Travelodge.
Martina is a current MPhil student in Development Studies, and has a background in Archaeology and Anthropology. Ask her about eco-friendly Aztec cities at your own risk. When not working, she enjoys painting, going on Wikipedia rabbit holes, and listening to random video essays longer than the average life expectancy.
Humeyra is a second year DPhil student in politics focusing on political speech and gender dynamics in Turkey. (Do not ask her about her research unless you are ready to get stuck in a 15 minute conversation.) When she's not doing her research or teaching, she enjoys going to conferences, travelling across the country and taking care of her little dog who is the centre of her universe. (Do ask her about the dog -- it will take another 15 minutes but you will see a lot of amazing dog photos.)
Soyoung is a third year DPhil student in Experimental Psychology. Research interests include adviser confidence, trust in advisers and influencer marketing (happy to discuss in detail).
Likes: museums/galleries, travelling, classical & techno music
Dislikes: Birds (has ornithophobia)
Anna is a second year MPhil student researching 18th century Japanese theatre, but don’t let that put you off. Born and raised in Yorkshire, she was quite literally the only gay in the village. When she isn’t working on her MPhil… haha, good one! There is no work/life balance in Japanese Studies. She does enjoy cooking and rollerblading though. Come say hello!
Honoka is THE Grape enthusiast and a professional dishwasher operator of the MCR. Aside from pursuing the quality of MCR life, she also pursues her interests as a second-year MPhil student in Islamic Studies and History. She is always hungry for fun trivia in every field, so please share yours!
Catherine has been at Pembroke as an undergrad doing a Masters in Physics and Philosophy and has loved it so much she's staying on for a BPhil focusing on Philosophy of Physics. She's a member of the Gilbert and Sullivan society, performing in Pirates of Penzance and a Covid-postponed Gondoliers. She's sung with Pembroke Chapel Choir and enjoys books and baking in her mythical free time.
When he’s not spending his time blissfully in the Weston with Anglo-Saxon texts, Dan concerts his efforts into combatting the overinflated egos of scholars of Late Antiquity. The inferior quality of their manuscripts (papyrus? In scrolls??) along with the *totally* irrelevant languages scrawled upon them (Syriac? 🤢) should, frankly, speak for themselves.
