Yaseen Christian Andrewsen
Yaseen is a second-year DPhil candidate in the faculty of Theology and Religion focused on Islamic intellectual history in West Africa. He enjoys reading, pottery, and football – playing or watching. He can be a bit reserved but if you find a topic in which he’s deeply interested, you’ll be desperately looking for the escape route to make him shut up. Please do share your own interests too, as he likes to learn from others.

Seda is a first-year DPhil Oriental Studies student specialising in theoretical morphosyntax. While she is a linguist, she does not speak 'many' languages. She loves reading for pleasure, walking in the meadows, and visiting random cities in Southeast England. She is known to attend most college events.
Nik is a third year DPhil student trying to understand the genetic basis for phenotypic outliers. As part of his research he has very sneakily infiltrated the Pembroke College Boat Club to discover the secret to great height and big muscles. When he's not debugging his code or rowing he likes to fall asleep while reading a good (but evidently not great) book.
Rohan is a place in Middle Earth. It’s also the name of a real human Australian at Pembroke. You’ll often find him in the Wood Room complaining about how cold England is and how Vegemite is better than Marmite (it is). He’s a reformed lawyer reading the DPhil in International Relations – but don’t worry, he can be good company too.
Connor is a fourth year DPhil student in the Department of Biology, which means he remembers the halcyon days when his Department was called Zoology – and has feelings about that. Connor is an American in recovery, a mediocre trail runner, and enjoys the small things in life.
