Executive Team 2016

The SUABE executive team is comprised of a number of talented and fascinating individuals. This is the 2016-2017 team, and here is what their peers have to say about them:


Marly Chen


Marly is the shortest, but bubbliest member of the SUABE executive. If she disappears, she can be sure to be found either at the squat rack or brightening up someone’s life with her smile and encouragement. She radiates positivity and is dedicated to all she does whether it be dropping some classic moves on the dance floor, or attempting to organise everyone else’s lives in addition to her own. Most of all, Marly is a great friend who is always there for you when you need her and will be the mastermind behind this year’s SUABE team.


Max Schultz

Vice President



Justin Abeleda




Jess Wu


Jess is not only known for single-handedly demolishing the SciSoc bar tab at their last Masquerade Ball, but also for her dashingly friendly personality. She’s always around to lend you a hand or give you a smile when you most need it just to brighten your day. Her attention to detail not only makes her an amazing SUABE and SciSoc Secretary but also a great friend. If she ever hits rock-bottom, she’ll take up the challenge and become a proctologist.


Professor Andrew Ruys

Faculty Member

The founder of the SUABE, the new Biomedical Engineering Degree at USYD, and the Director of Biomedical Engineering (Education) – Professor Ruys, is an integral part of the SUABE team. He is our greatest supporter and is always there when we need him most.


Justin Wanczura

Sponsorship Officer

Justin has achieved the infamous title of Speedo. Known by all for being banned on the slopes for literally skiing too fast, he is also cherished by all as an incredibly kind human, and now our very own treasurer. SUABE’s speedo will have endless shopping sprees that compare with no other girl in engineering, featuring top mans next model flashing every shade of blue jean on the spectrum. Spot the guy shuffling passionately on the dance floor, wearing vibrant tees that range from pineapples to every block of color imaginable – be sure to come up and say hi! Take note: Be not mistaken by his other replicate as many of us have fallen victim to.


Vincent Tsang

Marketing Director

Our resident computer wizard, Vincent had already made his mark as one of engineering’s most prominent marketing masterminds before walking through SUABE’s doors. One of the few unfortunately untainted by the questionable effects of binge-boozing, Vincent’s effortlessness in making friends and colleagues has always been his shining point. If not already evident in his excessive community work at Two Wolves or his exchanges, his selflessness will see him surrounded in PNR by first-years to arts students.


Dimitri Bantli

Second Year Representative

Dimitri is literally knows everyone on campus! from the Arts to the Sciences, Law & Engineering, he is one of the most outgoing members of all. Also not only member of a hand full of societies but actively executive members including, The Fred Hollows Foundation Society, Photography Society, the all and important BBQ master at Sydney Uni Engineering Undergraduates Association (SUEUA) and a founding member of the Sydney Univesrity Banter & Memes society (BAMSOC). A selfless human he will go on to become successful in any field just because of his dashing good looks.


Belynda Con Fu

Second Year Representative

Three words can be used to describe Bel, bubbly, brilliant and bold. She’s the one who you go to for help, the one who will get duties done on the ball and most importantly fill you with her bubbly spirit. Whenever she’s on her way, you can hear her laugh and her voice filling her path. Doing a dual degree in both biomedical engineering and medical science, she is a dedicated Fitbit Fan, finding any excuse to up her steps. When not helping out with suabe, she can be found being a loyal friend to others or swooning over the next delicious food craze.


Sophia Polito

First Year Representative



Courtney Diggins

First Year Representative

If you ever need a laugh or a mate to party with at Scubar, Courtney is your gal. After being school captain in high school, it is only natural that she would be a solid attribute to the SUABE team. With her mad piano skills and love for drawing, Courtney proves that engineers are in no way creatively inept number crunchers. Constantly surrounded by her fellow engineers in PNR, Courtney brings the first years together into one big happy engineering family
