A friend of mine once said to me 'Tom, you really should try to do something with your life other than economics', and I'm on a constant quest to follow her advice as little as I possibly can.
The Economics Society has shaped a large part of my university experience. I’m really looking forward to meeting each and everyone one of you out there!
It was a privilege to serve as the society’s President in 2016-2017. Events we organised last year included renowned economists such as Tim Harford, Professor Ricardo Reis, Professor Sir Charles Bean and Amartya Sen.
As the Chairman of the society over the coming year, I am looking forward to working with the new team to build further on the society’s continued success in appealing to the diverse interests of its members.
As Secretary, I spend my weekends lifelessly writing lame jokes for the Society's newsletter. Always eager to meet eager people -- to all you freshers out there, hit me up anytime to talk economics!
Carl tends to the financial foothold of the Society. With his oversight we are proud to be in a very strong position and are able to provide the best to our members in terms of speakers events, networking opportunities and so much more.
Hello everybody! I am Gerome, and I oversee the Special Events Division, which seeks to organize events and discussions that center around exciting and intriguing aspects of Economics. I also oversee the organization of the prestigious annual LSE-UCL Economics Conference, the Research Journal as well as our very own Rationale magazine! So, if you have any interesting events that you have in mind, feel free to talk to me and we can see how to work things out together!
I am a third year economics student currently serving as Head of Research. My research interests are in International Economics and Urban Economics. I am a recipient of the Charles Booth Prize at the LSE Research Festival for my work on gentrification. I have been an intern with the Bank of England in Monetary Analysis. For fun I follow football and am a QPR season ticket holder.
When not busy spending the weekend with friends, I am usually in my room taking a break or reading articles I find interesting. I like to think that I am approachable to anyone because I always have something to say to continue a conversation. Naturally, I care about finding the best people or organisations to help EconSoc facilitate the functions of what is a very inclusive and driven club.
Chitrita is responsible for maintaining the line of excellent speakers events that the Society is known for. She is constantly trying to get distinguished personalities to speak for the Society’s members.
Hello I’m Megan. An economics student by day and a turtle conservationist by night, I think I have the most exciting role in the society as the VP of social events. When I’m not busy solving differential equations, I’m trying to find new ways to preserve the marine ecosystem in particular turtle populations. I can’t wait to meet you at our next social event!
This individual is in charge of our prestigious LSE-UCL Economics Conference, which is scheduled for later this year. The sell-out conference is an annual highlight of the Society calendar.
