Doug King – Resident Liaison for Selle House and Chapman Steps

G'day! I'm Doug, and I'm the Resident Liaison for Selle House. I'm a PhD student at the Faculty of Pharmacy; my project is in medicinal chemistry. I come from South Coast NSW, studied my B.Pharm here at Usyd, and have come back after some years working as a pharmacist in the Illawarra. I'm also on the Pharmacy Faculty Board and I am Treasurer of the Sydney University Postgraduate Representative Association (SUPRA). Some of my interests are the performing arts (I sing with a few uni choirs), literature, calligraphy, drawing, tea and pubs. I can be contacted at , or personally at Unit 4, Selle House.

Anna Kennedy – Resident Liaison for Forest Lodge and Chapman Steps

My name is Anna Kennedy, and I’m in my second year of a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English Literature, with sub-majors in Philosophy and Linguistics. I’m from a town called Armidale, in country NSW. It’s about 6 hours drive from Sydney, or 8 hours by train. As might be expected, doing a BA in English, anything to do with books, reading, writing, I’m pretty passionate about. Also, I love listening to, and playing, music (I play both saxophone and violin). My other hobbies and/or interests are just the usual sorts of things - hanging out with friends, exploring all the awesome parts of Sydney, cooking, especially baking, and maybe a bit of tennis on the side. This year I’m at 26 Chapman Steps, and I should be available Tuesday, Thursday and Friday morning, Monday afternoons, and on the weekends as well.

Caine Trindall – Resident Liaison for Darlington Road

Hi, I'm Caine from 101 Darlington Rd. I moved to Sydney from the small town of Kiama on the South Coast of NSW. I have a proud Indigenous heritage. I'm in my second year of a Bachelor of Arts studying ancient history. I'm 20 years old. I'm easy going and new to the role of Resident Liaison, so I'm eager to help students however I can. Being a RL means being available, accessible and willing to lend a hand in any situation a student may face. I can be quiet at times, but this just means I'm more than prepared to listen to anything you wish to share.

Alex Wright - Resident Liaison for Darlington Road

Hey! I'm Alex, Resident Liaison at Darlington Road and I study Agricultural Economics here at Sydney Uni. I moved to Sydney from overseas and I know the hassle of moving and settling in to a new city. I'm easily approachable, relaxed and love meeting new people, especially over a good meal. Good food, driving and sports are a few of my interests, as well as trying to be active in the student community here - I'm a General Executive of the Scandinavian Appreciation Society after all. I look forward to helping you with almost anything to the best I can, so don't be afraid to ask me questions!

Ashleigh Verma – Resident Liaison for Darlington House

Hello, my name is Ashleigh Verma. I am originally from New Zealand, but have lived in Los Angeles for the majority of my life, prior to moving to Sydney to study. I am currently in my second year of my Bachelors in Science, majoring in Immunobiology and Cell Pathology. I hope to get my MD and become a specialist in infectious diseases. Along with studying and acting as the Resident Liaison for the Darlington House, I also volunteer regularly at RSPCA and St. John's Ambulance Services. In my free time, I love to travel, run, play or do anything pertaining to soccer, and just find any excuse to relax with my friends at the beach.
