Executive Team 2015

The SUABE executive team is comprised of a number of talented and fascinating individuals. This is the 2015-2016 team, and here is what their peers have to say about them:

Joel McCabe

Joel McCabe

President

When not tutoring MATH3974 – Fluid Mechanics of Alkanols (Advanced), Joel can be found in PNR attempting to help five people with seven different society related tasks. The mastermind and driving force behind SUABE this year, Joel is often single handedly responsible for both crushing our treasurer’s spirit with his wild plans, and the many incredible events SUABE holds.

Max Pentecost

Vice President

 

Melissa Nottidge

Melissa Nottidge

Treasurer

There are 2 things that Mel knows really well: how to balance the books, and how to get from Tijuana to San Diego on foot and without a passport. Not only does Mel have an amazing eye for detail, but she has also been a good friend since day 1 of university. I know that I can always count on her to make my events possible, and if I ever need someone to go to Scubar with – she’ll be there for me.

Galen Nethery

Galen Nethery

Secretary

Galen is (in)famous for 2 things: being a party animal, and being an all-round nice guy. When he isn’t being the life of the party, Galen will be (hopefully) busy at work or studying hard at biomedical engineering and science, always with a grin on his face and the thought of the next party on his mind. With excellent attention to detail and an iron will to stomach the worst, Galen is a valuable contribution to SUABE.

Andrew Ruys

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.

Katy Lu

Katy Lu

Sponsorship Officer

Katy is our very own friend from across the pond, bringing all the positive energy and funny accents that SUABE needs. Always willing to help out with anything, from post-pancakes clean-up to mad logo design, Katy tackles each challenge with a smile. When not busy with SUABE duties, Katy works hard doing a double degree by day, and partying hard by night – all the practice she needs to make an excellent engineer.

Daryl Fong

Daryl Fong

Marketing Director

SUABE’s very own evil genius. When Daryl isn’t busy planning to take over the world he is hard at work, making everything we do look good. Using his lightening quick skills on Photoshop, Daryl’s designs could convince anyone to come to our events (not that they’d need much convincing). While he’s not taking the world, he’s hard at work working on some electrical thingy or being a petty audiophile.

Max Schultz

Max Schultz

Second Year Representative

When Max is not deconstructing his latest set of coding, you can always find him in the midst of girls swooning at him. Highly intelligent, he loves his weights, whilst contemplating the next set of electrical theory that he has recently acquired. If you ever walk into PNR and listen carefully, you can always hear him singing soulfully his way through his studies. He’s the muscle of SUABE and if you are ever in need, you can always count on him.

Marly Chen 2

Marly Chen

Second Year Representative

They say good things come in small packages and they’re not wrong! Marly is our very own treasured second year representative who will brighten up the gloomiest day with her gorgeous smile and positivity. Her bubbly and energetic nature has brought great success to SUABE whether it’s motivating others, organising the next seminar or simply creating the best pancake mixture. She is kind and approachable and always up for a good chat about food and cheese!

Katy MacMahon

Katy MacMahon

First Year Representative

Studying Biomedical Engineering and Commerce, when she isn’t stopping hearts with her radiant smile, she’s dedicating her time as first year rep. With her dedication and passion, she is definitely a cherished member of the executive.

Yatha Jain

Yatha Jain

First Year Representative

This year SUABE has broadened its horizons and has adopted a little vegetarian into its ranks! Yatha Jain is our beloved first year representative who is an absolute ball of fun at every opportunity, whether it be Yatha juggling the books at uni or being able to come out with the gang. You will always find her with a bright smile on her face helping out enthusiastically at SUABEs pancakes or working away in PNR. Yatha is fun, out going, and always ready for a chat.
