Hamilton comes from San Diego and spent his formative years crisscrossing western North America, and enjoys any time spent outside. He hopes to grow CUEX's reach in Cambridge and get lots of expeditions going this year.
Laura Wainman -
Hi! I'm Laura, a third year Earth Scientist and I'm the CUEX events officer for this year. I love being outdoors - especially long-distance hiking! This year I walked the Great Glen Way in Scotland and last summer a friend and I tackled the Kungsleden trail in Sweden. So if you need any expedition advice, please get in touch! I also enjoy trail-running, although there's limited opportunity for that in Cambridge. This year, along with our usual exciting speakers, I hope to run a series of talks on improving diversity in the outdoors and to use our platform to amplify the voices of underrepresented groups. I look forward to seeing you at our talks!
Paul Scherer -
Computer sciences PhD
Paul is a 2nd year PhD student in the Computer Laboratory. His job will involve all sorts organisation and administration within the society such as taking minutes, ordering stash, administrating the mailing list and so on. He enjoys time spent outside and listening to stories and adventures of those on expeditions.
Tom Jameson -
Conservation Sciences PhD
Tom is a conservation scientist investigating the rewilding potential of large reptiles as part of a PhD in Zoology. Tom grew up hiking the hills of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District and his work as a conservation scientist takes him across the world chasing all creatures great and small. Tom has led expeditions both in the UK and overseas and hopes to use his experience to help facilitate as many exciting CUEX expeditions as possible.
