WHAT WE DO
The Physics Society holds a variety of events for physics students and enthusiasts, intended on supplementing your uni experience. It brings together like minded people. With events such as barbecues, guest lectures, and networking nights, there's something here for everyone.
We hold a wide range of social events for physics students and enthusiasts at the University of Sydney. This includes barbecues, liquid nitrogen ice cream events, estimation competitions, and trivia nights.
We hold talks every fortnight about interesting things happening in physics. Frequently, they'll be about the groundbreaking research being undertaken in the School of Physics. Other times, they'll be on career paths in Physics.
We hold networking nights that bring together industry, academia, and students. This puts into direct contact soon to be graduates and potential employees. It also provides an opportunity for students to learn what career paths are available to them.
Physics Society Executive
This is our dedicated team, which works hard to make PhySoc events happen. We organise them, advertise them, and make them possible. We're passionate about bringing people together, and we're here to help.
KATRINA MARSHALL (SHE/HER)
Hellloo! I’m Katrina, a third year Physics and Mechatronic Engineering student and your president for 2022! When I’m not at uni I like to spend my time cooking, reading, crafting and visiting art galleries. I also love trying different hairstyles so don’t be surprised to see me sporting a different colour each month. I love physics because it usually answers the “but why?” questions. Even when it doesn’t, the fact that there’s still so much to be discovered makes it even more exciting!! I’m very keen to for what we have planned for our fellow physicists this year and looking forward to seeing you around at some of our events :+)
JEAN LUC BARBARA (THEY/THEM)
Hi there! I'm Jean Luc, a fourth year Medieval English Honours Student, and Treasurer / Coffee orderer for 2022! Not actually doing Physics has never stopped me from helping my community, and I'm always eager to learn something new. When I'm not in Nano, I spend my time playing music, gardening, or finding new ways to get a free lunch!
Come and say hi if you see me around, otherwise I can't wait to see you at any of our amazing events this year!
AFRIN JANNAT (SHE/HER)
Hi there! I am Afrin, a third year Physics/Economics student. You can probably always find me procrastinating around the Quad (it’s not my fault that the place is so aesthetically pleasing!). Special interests include finding new places to eat and engaging conversations on books, space and philosophy. I have been kind of an astronomy nerd since childhood so naturally physics has been my favorite science for a while now. I am excited to be a part of PhySoc this year and to be able to meet more fellow physics enthusiasts at our future events!
RIYA RAIZADA (SHE/HER)
Hey, I’m Riya! I’m in my second year and currently studying Physics and Maths. Physics has been my interest since I was 7 and I am soooo excited to finally be studying it at uni! As for my hobbies: I will read any book that exists (though my soft spot is a good adventure), I want to travel to basically any city you can name and sports can be considered my arch-nemesis. I am so grateful to be your general executive in 2021-2022 and am super-keen to contribute to the awesome events Physoc has in store for you this year!
Hi!! I’m Amelie, a Physics and Computer Science student, currently tackling my second year, and a PhySoc general executive! In my down time I love to fence (with swords) and knit (with needles). I absolutely love dogs (my little fluffy boy in particular), and I think pretty much every animal is adorable simply for existing :). Physics is a response to the insatiable human curiosity and that’s why I love it so much! It asks questions ranging from the everyday to the distant universe! It’s going to be an amazing year with all the events PhySoc has planned for physicists of all levels of interest and knowledge!
