We are a team coming together from various departments at the University of Cambridge, all united in our interest to make the energy transition and decarbonisation a reality. Fostering the exchange of ideas amongst students and advancing the knowledge about this through our events is what we care for.
Anish is a second year PhD student in Materials Science and Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge. He completed his B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from Clemson University in 2021, being named a Marcus L. Urann Fellow and Gates-Cambridge Scholar. During his undergraduate degree, Anish helped build green technology innovation ecosystems for students across the United States, participated in Clemson's internationally competitive debating team, and completed rotations at GE Gas Power and 3M Corporate Materials Research Laboratory. Currently, Anish works on advancing photovoltaic devices for space applications using nanostructured geometries. Outside of work, he enjoys watching movies, mixology, and all things basketball!
Timothy is a second year PhD student in Materials Science and Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge. He completed his MSci with honours in Natural Sciences from University College London in 2020 majoring in physics and finished his bachelors at McGill University in Montreal through a year abroad program. Timothy was the previous president of the Nanotechnology society, and the previous external relations officer at CUETS. Currently Timothy works in the electron microscopy group focussing on technique development for atomic scale characterization of radiation sensitive materials. When not in the lab, he can often be found with his camera taking photos or with his apron baking.
Laura is a fourth-year engineering student at the University of Cambridge whose studies generally focus on energy and sustainability. Her fourth-year project will explore whether it is best to electrify or fabricate domestic buildings first. Throughout school and her time so far in university, she has been involved in environmental societies and campaigns such as the Cambridge Climate Society. In her spare time, Laura likes walking, pubs and rock music.
Tom is a second year PhD student working in StranksLab and the Electron Microscopy Group to characterise hybrid perovskites, a potential next-generation solar cell material. He previously studied at the University of Nottingham (MSci) and enjoys running and playing the guitar in his spare time.

Izzy is a masters student in Materials Science at Emmanuel College. She plans to put her degree to use by developing sustainable energy generation and storage solutions. Her undergraduate research project was an assessment of different photovoltaic cells under a variety of solar spectra. Her research experience also includes helping develop organic redox flow batteries in the Aziz group at Harvard, as a PRISE research fellow. Her dedication to sustainable issues extends beyond STEM, as the Chair of Cambridge Young Greens (2021-22) and doing an internship with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership. She is also a lover of open water swimming, running, and jewellery making!
VP - Webmaster
Lorenzo is a PhD student in the department of physics, as part of the NanoDTC. His research focuses on the modelling and simulation of quantum systems embedded in classical circuits, with the particular application to Silicon Spin Qubits. His PhD is co-supervised by Prof. Chris Ford at University of Cambridge and Fernando Gonzalez-Zalba, lead Quantum Engineer at Quantum Motion Technologies. Outside the Lab, Lorenzo's interest include coding, Tarot Cards, and anything vaguley old and misterious.

Social Media Chair
Julia is a student at Girton College pursuing her MPhil in English Studies. She obtained her BA degree, with high honours, from Emory University in Classics & English. While in undergrad, she co-managed modeling agencies’ various social media and digital platforms. After undergrad, Julia worked at a law firm, where she supported attorneys on projects across the renewable energy sector, from wind and solar farms to those concerning Battery Energy Storage Systems and new, low-cost hydrogen technology. In her spare time, you can find her reading medieval British literature, riding horses, and trying to make friends with as many dogs as possible.
