OUGS is led by a dedicated, hard-working team of students who are elected annually. Check out our bios below to meet the 2023-24 Committee, and don't be afraid to say hello if you see us around!
YOUR 2023-24 COMMITTEE
Hi, I'm Maddy! As President, I oversee the smooth running of OUGS and am proud to introduce the excellent committee behind it. We are dedicated to engaging students with our natural and human worlds through meaningful events. Geography is a dynamic discipline well-poised to solve many issues facing our generation, and I look forward to exploring this with all of you. I hail from sunny Singapore and love fencing, hiking and the beach. Come chat sustainable development or rocks with me, or simply reach out if you have any questions about the society!
Hi! My name is Freddie and I am a first year geographer at Brasenose College. I am the treasurer of the geography society which means I will be working alongside our executive committee to ensure that we are able to maintain a high standard of events by ensuring we can afford them. My geographical interests include geoeconomics, geopolitics in Indochina (especially North Korea) and climatology/ energy security. For any further information about our financial goals, sponsorship or enquiries about our events pricing/ procurement, I’m always available to answer questions!
My name is Daisy and I am a first year geographer at Mansfield College. I will be the access officer, hoping to work collaboratively with the rest of the committee, members of OUGS and the wider student body to increase access to geography and the university more broadly! My areas of geographical interest include critical development geographies and geographies of the body. Please reach out to me with any ideas, queries or feedback on outreach!
Hiya! I’m Siri, a first year Geographer at Keble college. Serving as secretary, I’ll be handling the background admin so that we can put on exciting events for you. I’ll also be editing our newsletter (top tip: keep a lookout for GeoTrivia and other fun bagatelles :) ). My greatest geographical interests are demographics, sustainable development and human rights. I hope GeoSoc’s term-card piques your geographical interests and I look forward to seeing you at our events!
IT & Marketing Officer
Christ Church College
Hey! My name is Maisy and I am a second year geographer at Christ Church College and will be managing IT/Marketing. I hope to create engaging posts for OUGS on social media and our website and keeping everyone well informed about all of our amazing events! My interests in geography lie in the physical realm and includes deserts, data science and volcanoes. Outside of geography I enjoy road cycling and painting. Please feel free to contact me about any IT/Marketing ideas or questions :)
Hi! I'm Hannah and I will be Events Officer and a first year geographer at Mansfield College. I'll be planning events and ensuring they run smoothly. I enjoy human and environmental geography, and in particular development, migration and the Anthropocene. Aside from geography, I like to read and go on walks and bike rides (the muddier the better!). Feel free to chat about events, geography or anything else with me, and if you have any ideas for events you want to see, don't hesitate to let me know!
