The CSESoc Team

Executive

The Exec run the whole circus here at CSESoc! They've been elected by CSESoc members and work hard to set the vision and principles that guide everything we do. They don't have a subcommittee to join, but they juggle all the admin and keep an eye on the whole director team to ensure everything is running smoothly.

You'll usually find me reading, watching films, listening to pods, or taking photos. If you're coming in as a first year, it's a great idea to join a few societies and get really involved!

Hello! My name is Shrey - I'm a fourth year CS student, and I'm the development lead for 2021. I work closely to help guide our competitions, education and projects teams.

My advice would be to make the most of every opportunity! Get involved with hackathons, try out some competitions - it's okay to fail. The fun doesn't come from winning, but from the event itself. Do everything in your power to make some memories! See you round :)

Hi my name is Evan "I can crack 38 parts of my body" Lee.

Hi, my name's Hanyuan, I'm a 2nd-year Computer Science student, and I'm one of the new Competitions directors! You can catch me on Discord with the status "playing VSCode", binging Chinese reality shows or playing way too much Magic: the Gathering. When picking subjects, actually pick subjects you're interested in - the motivation difference is night and day.

Ryan Shi

Ryan Shi

Competitions Director

My advice is to not get swamped by generic introductions. If you want to stand out, then why introduce yourself like everyone else?

Education

Education organises and runs workshops to help students hone their technical skills, whether that’s to reinforce course content or to teach you important industry-relevant skills not covered in class.

Gordon Huang

Gordon Huang

Education Director

Hi! I’m Gordon, a 2nd year CS student 😄 As part of the education team, I assist members of the community in sharing their knowledge through workshops, videos and articles so we can all learn from each other’s unique programming interests. My advice is to keep an open mind and try out new things. Uni is a place for you to explore uncharted waters and to discover subjects and activities you never knew you would enjoy.

Jasper Di Francesco

Jasper Di Francesco

Education Director

Hey, I’m a third year SEng student and a co-director of Education. My role is to organise events and content relevant to learning about topics not usually taught in CSE courses. My advice is don’t get too caught up in your marks and try to find out what else uni can offer you. Then, find a healthy balance between it all.

Projects

The Projects team works on a student-led programming project outside of normal coursework. It’s a great way to get experience in a real-life software development scene, from idea generation all the way to deployment. Projects include a degree planner, a timetabler, and an elective review website.

Abiram Nadarajah

Abiram Nadarajah

Technical Director

Hello, I'm Abiram (he/him) and I'm a third year computer science student and resident security shill! When I'm not living a life of cybercrime*, I enjoy cooking (especially ramen), going on incessantly long coastal walks, being obsessed with cable management, and telling myself that I'll learn the Rust programming language 🦀, all while messing my sleep schedule.

*For legal reasons, this is a joke.


Events Portfolio

The events portfolio - you guessed it - is in charge of all the events CSESoc runs. They strive to facilitate lasting bonds between students, and to get you connected with like-minded people.

Come say hi to me if you see me around!! :DD

Hey, I'm Van! I'm a second year Computer Science / Media Arts student. I'm here to help build the aesthetic content you'll be seeing for CSESoc.

Hiyaa! I’m Eliza, a second year Software Engineering student with a soft spot for egg tarts and watching the waves crash on the beach 🥰. In my spare time, you’ll catch me sketching portraits, messing around with Photoshop or Illustrator, or being absolutely tragic over a romcom! I’m always on the hunt for new artistic adventures, so hit me up if you’re ever down for a dose of ✨ chaotic creative energy ✨.
