Hi, I'm Oli (he/him), a NanoDTC student studying for a PhD in quantum optics using colour centres in 2D materials. My job is to foster engagement between the MCR and SCR members at Caius, mainly through organising events in common with the Fellows during term. This includes joint research talks, dining swaps between the gallery and high table, and other one-off opportunities to meet the college big guns. Look out for emails soon with upcoming events, and feel free to get in touch if you have questions or want to get involved at

Access and Outreach Officer

Hello, I am Liana a CRUK-funded 2nd year PhD student at the Department of Biochemistry. As the MCR Access and Outreach Officer, I seek to promote opportunities for postgraduate education at Caius to prospective applicants from underrepresented groups. It is incredibly important that once we reach out to students to apply to the college we continue to support them throughout their studies and beyond. I felt the need to establish this role due to the negative effect that underrepresentation can have on a student’s experience, regarding both education and mental health. For current students, this role provides an advocate for inclusivity amongst the graduate community. If you have any questions, need to talk or want to get involved in outreach, please email me

Partners and Families

Hello! I’m Ashray (Ash) and I’m in the first year of clinical PhD at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. Just prior to starting, my wife (Emily) and I relocated to the UK from Australia, so we have some first-hand experience of what settling in to Cambridge life as a long-term couple is like! As the Partners and Families Rep, I’m responsible for representing the interests of those in the MCR with long term partners and/or children/dependents, and ensuring they feel part of the Caius community. Feel free to email if you want to get in touch!
