Wardens

The Wardening team are here for your safety, wellbeing and discipline - but also to make sure the Hall runs smoothly and you have an enjoyable first year at university.

Wilson House has a Warden, an Assistant Warden, seven Sub-Wardens (who together make up the Wardening team) and twenty Hall Seniors. Meet the Wardening team below. The wardening team are here for you, so don’t hesitate to stop by or approach anyone of us if you see us in the hall. We wish you a very happy and successful year, and look forward to meeting you all!


Pramod - Warden

Welcome to Wilson House. I’m Pramod, the Warden of this wonderful establishment, responsible for the wardening team, and more importantly, your welfare, hall social life and discipline. I’ve spent a fair amount of time in UK universities, before settling here, at the very best (Imperial, of course!).

I’ve recently started working in the university strategy department, working to help the college maintain its world class reputation. Before this, I worked as a Research Associate in Mech Eng for three years, designing implants for Knees, Hips and other body parts (purely joint related, of course). I’ve been wardening for over 6 years and have a wealth of experience, so do feel free to direct any questions you may have to me, and I’ll do my best to help.

In my free time I play a fair bit of squash and tennis, and absolutely love cycling. I also try my hand on the guitar and piano from time to time, which often results in strange noises emanating from my room, so don’t be alarmed.

My team and I are here to help in any way we can, so please do let us know if there’s anything we can do to make your stay and experience here at Wilson amazing and memorable. Hope you have a fantastic year with us.

Francesco - Assistant Warden

Hi everyone, welcome to Wilson House! I am originally from Italy, and am currently an RA in the Mechanical Engineering department here at Imperial. In my free time I love to play sports, mainly squash, football, and rock climbing, as well as cultivating my passion for cooking. I have spent the last decade abroad, between the UK, USA and Switzerland. So I understand how overwhelming it feels to move to a new place, but also the exciting opportunities that come along with being somewhere new. The wardening team are here for you, so don’t hesitate to stop by or approach me if you see me in the hall. I wish you a very happy and successful year, look forward to meeting you all!


Gavin

Hi! I'm Gavin - I'm from a place called High Wycombe which is quite close to London. I've been at Imperial for 4 years now having just finished my undergrad in Physics - I have lots of Blackett stories to tell. I'm now starting an MRes+PhD programme that is run by both Kings College and Imperial College London. I'll be based in the Computing department for my PhD but my research will splice physics, medical imaging and computing (machine learning).

I really enjoy playing tennis and badminton - you'll often find me at the Hyde Park tennis courts. One of my goals this year is to try out climbing - so please ask me how climbing is going so that I actually do it! Aside from sport, I'm a big fan of tea and I'm interested in new tech. I'm currently the administrator and developer for the eHalls system so please find me if you have any difficulties

So... Welcome to Wilson House and Imperial! I hope you have a fantastic year and I look forward to meeting you all! If you see me around, please don't hesitate to come say hi - I'm here to help with any issues that arise :)

Eirik

Hey, I’m Eirik. I’m from Norway, though I’ve spent the majority of my life living abroad. I was born in Egypt and have lived in Russia, U.S.A, U.A.E, Norway, and Scotland. So I’m no stranger to moving to a new city! I’ve spent the past 5 years studying in Edinburgh getting my MEng in Structural and Fire Safety Engineering. If you ever get the chance to visit Edinburgh, I strongly recommend it – it’s a lovely city. After 5 years I’m ready for a new city and new challenges. This will be my first year in London and I’m really looking forward to trying everything London has to offer! I’m starting my PhD which looks into “wild fires in cold regions”. So hopefully I’ll just be lighting some stuff on fire for a few years.

In my free time I play any sport I can get my hands on; football, tennis, golf, basketball, literally anything. So if you ever need another player for a casual game, don’t hesitate to ask!

Finally, welcome to Imperial, and more importantly Wilson House! I sincerely hope you have an amazing university experience, starting with this year. London and Imperial have a lot to offer and there’s something for everyone. I wish you good luck and have fun!

Marissa

Hello if you’re still reading this far! I’m Marissa. I’m a final year medical student who is currently on a hospital placement over the summer, delivering babies. I also took a year out of my studies to work in the Students’ Union as Deputy President (Welfare), making this my sixth year at Imperial altogether!Outside of hospitals and the hallowed halls of Imperial, I enjoy travelling. Last year, I managed to go to Lisbon, Amsterdam and Helsinki and I have South America in mind for when I get enough time and (more importantly) enough money. I also like finding quirky stuff going on in London, whether it’s a night out in Camden which only plays Power Ballads, an underground journalism fair or a speed lock-picking class – you always have good stories to tell afterwards. Anyway, welcome to Wilson! Looking forward to meeting you all in October

Ryan

Hello everybody and congratulations for making it to Imperial College and Wilson House. My name’s Ryan and I am from Malaysia where it’s summer all year long. I did my undergraduate degree in the Department of Chemical Engineering and now I’m doing my PhD in Particle Engineering where I play with sand all day (no, not the fun stuff at the beach). During my down time, I like to find new fun things to do and food hunting. Sadly being a self-proclaimed connoisseur of good food doesn’t make me a good cook but if you’re looking for some good grub, I can gladly hook you up with some of my favorite local establishments. Please feel free to grab me for a chat if you see me around, don’t worry I don’t bite most of the time. And I hope you’re looking forward to moving in as we have a whole array of awesome events lined up to kick off your university life with a bang! See you soon!

Melis

Hey guys, welcome to Imperial College and to Wilson House. I hope you will enjoy your course and your stay here! I am Melis, part of the Wardening Team in this hall. I joined Imperial College after finishing my undergraduate degree in Business and Chemistry at the University of Ulm in Germany. Like others before, I fell in love with London instantly and decided to stay for a PhD after finishing my MRes in Chemical Biology. Now I try to solve one of the many mysteries regarding post-translational modifications of histone proteins a.k.a. finding the master cure for everything (how awesome would that be!?).

Next to my studies, I love travelling around the world, learning new languages and getting to know different cultures. The last few years I have been really into learning Hindi and hope to travel around India at one point in my life. However, I also enjoy wandering through London and discovering different sides of the city. A friend and I, we made it our utmost goal to try out a restaurant of each country of the world in London. So I am happy to try new things! Other than that, I love ball games like basketball, volleyball, especially football (played for many years!) and I enjoy a competitive game of table tennis (happy to accept any challenges :D).

Liuba

Hey everyone, and welcome to Wilson House and Imperial! I'm Liuba, and I have just finished my masters here in the Physics department, and am starting my PhD journey in Biophotonics. I play classical guitar and enjoy alpine skiing, racket sports and running. I also take waaay too many photos, and as you can guess, living in London doesn't help, as there are too many beautiful views and interesting places. I am looking forward to meeting you and helping make sure you will have an amazing first year at Wilson!

Nicole

Hey everyone, welcome to Wilson House! My name is Nicole, and like most of you, this will be my first year studying at Imperial College. I completed my undergraduate degree in Neuroscience at The University of Manchester. I am looking forward to starting my MRes in Clinical Research (Diabetes and Obesity) in a less rainy city!

When I'm not tucked away in the lab, I enjoy going to gigs and finding new music. I love singing, so if you hear anyone humming a tune around halls - it's likely to be me. I also love food (who doesn't), and personally think that London has some of the best restaurants. My favourite way to spend an afternoon in London is to wander around the museums, and living in Wilson House - some of the best museums are just a short walk away.

I hope that you all have an amazing year exploring London, and studying at Imperial. Feel free to stop me for a chat if you see me around halls, I look forward to meeting you all soon!
