Natacha Barrow (Chair)

Hey! My name is Natacha, I am a 21-year-old Frenchie, and I am currently finishing up my bachelor in Astronomy. I am the chair of the INTRO Committee, which means that I organize meetings and keep track of everything to make sure that the weekend goes smoothly. You will probably see me walking around and making sure that everything is in order, but feel free to come over if you have any questions or just want to start up a conversation. I also love sports and would definitely take you up on a game of volleyball.

Vedang Sumbre (Secretary)

Hello there! My name is Vedang and I'm going to be second year Physics student. I am the Secretary of the INTRO committee, which means that I take the minutes during our meetings. I also check our email on a regular basis, so if you email us about anything, you'll probably get a response from me. I like watching rugby and cricket, and jamming to reggae. I will probably be all over the place during INTRO, so feel free to come up to me at any point if you want to have a chat about anything. I'm looking forward to meeting y'all!
