Farbod Akhlaghi-Ghaffarokh, MCR President 2018-19
I’m Farbod, the Oriel MCR President. I am a second-year DPhil Philosophy candidate, and I work primarily in metaphysics, moral philosophy, and the exciting area in-between. I grew up around the world before finishing secondary school in Oxford, completing my undergraduate degree at Reading, and taking my Masters degrees at St Andrews and Cambridge.
As President, my role is to do all I can to ensure that graduate students have the best possible time at Oriel. This includes representing your interests in College, working to improve the academic support and social environment at Oriel, and to do what I can to keep this incredible community the fantastic place that it is.
I look forward to welcoming you all to Oriel, and to our wonderful MCR!

Alex Pateman, MCR Treasurer 2018-19
I’m Alex, the MCR Treasurer for this year. I am in my 3rd year of a DPhil in Materials, working on lithium-air batteries (and a few other things).
My job is to keep the money for all the exciting MCR events flowing, and to generally deal with the financial side of the MCR’s activities. I am also a very good person to talk to if you have any Oriel/Oxford related questions, and I will be found at most MCR events throughout the year.
I look forward to welcoming you to Oriel and the best MCR in Oxford! Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions (email@example.com).
