Executive Team


President

Soud Kharusi

President

Hey what's up hello! My name is Soud and I come from Oman. As president of the MSPS my main responsibilities are to keep people on task and conduct our weekly meetings. I sit on various councils at McGill and can really be the voice for you physics students! Have a problem with a prof that's shared with many? Have a cool idea for the lounge? Want to party with the department some more? Hit me up below.

My main objective this year is to change the Physics department culture and the way MSPS is run.

Outside of physics I like to go to tear up dance floors at EDM shows, go snowboarding and maybe wear an excessive amount of glowsticks from time to time. I am also involved with SUS' events portfolio and philanthropy at DKE McGill.

VP Academics

Gary Tom

VP Academics

Hi, I'm VP Academics. I do academic things. Undergraduate research opportunities, talks about graduate school and research, undergraduate study space resources, and tutoring services, are some of the things I am responsible for. This year, I have also been managing the website for the MSPS.

VP External

Nathan Leitao

VP External

Hey!! I'm Nathan (/Nathaniel/Nate/Nate-Dawg) and I'm a U2 Honours Math and Physics student. As your VP External I'm in charge of representing the Physics undergrad community to the Science Undergraduate Society (SUS) as well as co-planning all interdepartmental events such as the Awkward Mixer and Semi-Formal. I'm also a Captain for the Physics/Cognitive Science Games team. If you see me around Rutherford and have any ideas/questions for events like these, never be afraid to say hi! I'm always down to talk about MSPS, the beautiful subject that is physics or just about anything else. When not stressing over any of the above or over an upcoming array of problem sets, I can frequently be found Netflix and Chillin or listening to Bon Iver in excess.

VP Communications

Laura Saunders

VP Communications

So this is my face. Normally you hear from me through text-based media. A lot. Sorry if I'm a bother, but my job is literally to spam people. I hope you like my e-mails and stupid jokes that I may or may not steal from Reddit.


VP Expenditure

Julia Morales

VP Expenditure

Hey I'm Julia, VP Expenditure here! I'm in charge of making your life a little more interesting outside of school. I teach physicists to turn up! I also try to make us not go bankrupt on booze expenses. I'm a captain for the physics Science Games team and I bake brownies for y'all. So when life gives you lemons, make limoncello.

Executive Officer of Administration

Connor Sheere

EOA

Hi, I'm Connor. I take care of the things that nobody really wants to do (meeting minutes, cleaning the office...). It builds character?

This year I also manage this beautiful website (for which we can thank @Gary!). And yes, this is the only picture of me that you will be able to find on the Internet.

U1 Representative

James Fraser

EOA

Hola! I'm James, an Honours Physics student and the U1 Rep for the MSPS.

Being a U1 student, it's my job to communicate to the other U1's, and get them aware of the amazing events the MSPS plan's for the student body!

In my spare time, I'm involved with the McGill Rocket Team, act as Sergeant-At-Arms at PKP, and work at making the most of my time here at McGill!

Keep your eye out for mixers with other programs, special talks by professors and researchers, and much more!


U1 Representative

Aria Malhotra

U1 Representative

Hey hey!! I'm Aria, also a U1 rep for the MSPS. I'm in the majors program, and my role involves communicating with U1 physicists about everything organised by the society. I can't wait to see all your lovely faces at the events and mixers this year!

I'll leave y'all with this cute joke:

What did Donald duck say to the physicist?
