The Committee


President – Eloise Chambers

Hi – I’m Eloise, I really love being in the mountains, exploring wild places and having adventures. Before I became an Earth Science undergraduate I worked as a Mountain Leader, and a climbing and paddlesports instructor. I’ve been lucky enough to be part of, and to lead, expeditions in the Lake District, Scotland, the Himalaya, the Alps and northern Spain. It’s always brilliant to hear about other people’s adventures. The Explorers’ tales at our weekly talks really inspire me and I’m always looking for ideas for future adventures.

Hi! I am an 4rd year Earth Sciences at St Hugh’s. I have enjoyed being in the natural world from a young age from walking in the countryside to wild camping in arctic Norway while completing a 6-week fieldwork project. This summer I spent a month walking in the Scottish highlands, exploring some of the UK’s wild spaces. I joined the committee after being inspired by the talks and meeting like-minded people. I particularly enjoy hiking, photography and some cycling. I enjoy new challenges, taking up climbing for the first time at uni.

Greetings explorers! I’m James, the webmaster for this year (again), so if anything is wrong on the website don’t fail to get in touch with me. Alongside website maintainer, I’m a fourth year Physics student and outdoors fan. Like Will, I have served on the OUMC (Oxford University Mountaineering Club) in the role of ‘Gear Sectary’, which involved storing 40 climbing shoes in my room and lugging them up to Brookes Climbing wall via Headington Hill every week; I’m much happier with a more indoor role now. This summer I spent 3 weeks cycle touring in France, and although it didn’t all go to plan (cycling injuries, lack of personal hygiene etc) I had a really fun time and looking forward to doing something similar next summer vacation.
