Frequently asked questions

Sargent Centre Post Doc Reps

We have two Sargent Centre Student Reps Mr Mohamed Maher and Mr Tanuj Karia and three Sargent Centre Post Doc Reps: Dr Sara Giarola and Dr Zoltán Kis from Imperial College and Dr Max Besenhard from UCL. You can contact your Reps about any problems, issues or suggestions that you would like to raise. The Reps will represent your views to Sargent Centre Management and provide feedback from Sargent Centre community. It is essential that you make efforts to communicate issues of concern. This can be positive feedback on aspects which work well (and thus might be shared as good practice) as well as concerns about issues which negatively affect your experience. The Reps will also be invited to comment on, and provide input to proposed changes to procedures and will decimate information to their peers. The overall aim is to improve the experience for Sargent Centre researchers.
