Wardening Team

The wardens act as your first port of call for help and support for any matters relating to life in halls. The Wardening team are here for the safety and well-being of the students and to make sure the hall runs smoothly. Kemp Porter Buildings has two hall wardens, and 12 sub-wardens (who together make up the Wardening team). The wardening team are here for you, so don’t hesitate to stop by or approach anyone of us if you see us in the hall!

Hall Wardens

Mark

Freddie

Hello Team, I’m Freddie. Big welcome to the Kemp Porter buildings – the newest and shiniest of halls at Imperial. Alongside Mark we are the two wardens of the hall and we oversee the wellbeing of all our residents with the support of our fantastic Subwarden team. I think you’ll really like it here at Imperial and at KP – I joined the college 9 years ago and have never looked back and am really excited to be starting this new hall. Elsewhere in college, I work at the Dyson School of Design Engineering where I’m in charge of our MEng programme, but my original background is in physics (nano lasers and graphene!). Outside Imperial I like running and climbing as well as playing music and the right balance of computer games. Do say hello if you see me around – I’m always happy to have a chat. Wishing you all the best for the coming year!

Subwardens

Adam

Hey KP residents! I’m Adam, a PhD student working on carbon fibre composites at Imperial. During my undergrad I stayed at Woodward, so I can say as a North Acton veteran that it’s a great place to live whilst you study in London! I love lots of sports: football, golf, badminton, snowboarding & Formula 1 particularly. I also enjoy exploring the different comedy nights London has to offer! I hope you have a great year at KP and I look forward to meeting many of you!

Benji

Hi everyone, I’m Benji from Malta and one of the subwardens living in block B at the Kemp Porter Buildings. I’m a second-year chemistry PhD student who spends most of my time synthesising 2D materials which I integrate into novel printed devices.  When I’m not in the lab, you’ll probably find me with a large mug of tea in one hand, and a good book in the other. I’m also keen on hiking whenever I can find the time to do so. I look forward to meeting all of you soon! 

Charlie

Hi I’m Charlie! I’m a final year PhD student working on satellite propulsion within the department of Aeronautics. I love climbing, playing football and all things space. I’m live in flat C1902 and can’t wait to get to know you all!

Dan

Hello everyone, I’m Dan and I’ll be the sub-warden on C26 this year. Having completed my undergrad here at Imperial I’m just starting a PhD in pure mathematics, in particular studying SPDEs which have applications to the ocean and atmosphere. When I’m not staring at equations you may find me playing table tennis or strolling along the canal. I’m a smiley person beneath the mask and I’ll always be happy to stop for a chat. One way or another I hope to speak to many of you soon!

Elena

Hi everyone, I am Elena! I graduated from The University of Manchester in 2020 and I am currently doing an MSc in Molecular Medicine at Imperial. On my free time I like to travel, listen to music and discover new places in London. I can’t wait to meet you all!

Geraint

Hi, I’m Geraint, I’m doing my PhD at the Earth Science & Engineering Department looking for life on Mars. So far nothing but we haven’t tried emailing them yet. In my free time I like to climb things, cycle, complain about the government, play D&D and do a bit of activism. During the Covid era I have rediscovered an appreciation for the art of making good tea, niche genres of music and Wikipedia rabbit holes. I’ve been a subwarden for two and a half years, I love being part of a community here and can’t wait to be able to see everyone in person again.

Max

Nadia

Phoebe

Hi everyone, I’m Phoebe – the subwarden on C12! I joined Imperial this year to study a Masters in Translational Neuroscience. Outside the lab, I can usually be found listening to a podcast or audiobook whilst baking far too many cakes or getting lost walking around London. I’m looking forward to meeting you all and having a great year at KP!

Rein

Hi all, I am a PhD student working in the interface between bioinformatics and healthy ageing research. When not in halls, I can probably be found on a bicycle, roaming the streets of London. I’ve been living (and working) in IC halls since I moved in for the first year of my UG degree in 2016. I’m very excited to welcome you to the newest (and best!) hall at Imperial, and I hope that you make many lovely memories here

Rhea

Yuriy

Welcome new KP arrivals! My name is Yuriy and I will be the subwarden on C4 this coming year. Currently I am doing a PhD in Mathematics specialising in probability theory and, like a lot of the other wardens, I also studied at Imperial during my undergrad. (The fact that we have willingly been here so long should only encourage you that Imperial is a great place to study.) In my spare time I enjoy doing sports, particularly ice hockey and calisthenics, and am really looking forward to being able to get back on the ice. If you see me around campus/KP, feel free to come and say hi!
