2020/2021 Executive Committee
Marcus Tao Mox Lim – President
Marcus is a final year International Relations student. His academic interests are varied: ranging from assessing the limits of soft power to the impact of decolonisation in the Asia-Pacific region as well as the study of British imperial history. He has a particular interest on the influence of strategic culture’s impact on foreign policymaking. As President, he looks forward in expanding the frequencies of GPRIS publications.
Carla Tilsiter – Vice President
Carla is BA Politics finalist at KCL. The 2020/21 academic year will be her third year on the GPRIS committee, having been Director of Events in her first year and Treasurer in her second. As VP, she will help devise and implement a new strategic vision to better connect GPRIS to its members. Carla’s geopolitical interests lie at the intersection of finance and politics, particularly in seemingly ‘untraditional’ arenas such as outer space.
Thomas Soerenson – Treasurer
Thomas is a final year student of History and International Relations and Treasurer for the academic year 2020/2021. He seeks to make the society more focused on post-uni job prospects. His academic interests include diplomacy, defence intelligence and economic foreign policy.
Archishman Ray Goswami – Editor in Chief
Roxana Neagoe – Managing Editor
Roxana is a 2nd year International Relations student. Her interests are varied, ranging from the geopolitics of soft power to foreign policy making. Particularly, she has a deep interest in strategic affairs, defence and security.
Paula Suero Guillermo – Director of Events
Paula is an incoming 3rd Year Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) student. In line with the nature of KCLGPRIS, her interests are quite interdisciplinary, ranging from international energy securitization in a decarbonizing world to public sector regulation or political theory. Talks with professionals, debate-like sessions, career orientations with previous alumni and of course socials are just some of the events which she will be organizing with the help of the committee. We are open to suggestions, so do reach out if there is anything specific that you would like to see happening! Looking forward to seeing you at our events!
Vedant Sinha – Marketing and Outreach Officer
Vedant is a 2nd year Political Economy student from New Delhi, India. He is interested in the interplay of geopolitical risk assessments and behavioural economics. As the Marketing & Outreach Officer for the 2020/21 committee, his goal is to get more people to engage with the society’s events and stay in the loop with what’s happening round the year.
Caroline Kamper – Executive Assistant
Caroline is a 2nd year International Relations & War Studies student from Denmark! Her interests in the realms of international relations range from the topics of defence and security as shown by her module choices next year. She is both the Executive Assistant for GPRIS as well as the Social Secretary for the War Studies Society. She is currently ‘isolating’ in Denmark and looks forward to returning to London to revisit her favourite spot at the Maughan (she will never tell …) and hang out at her local Wetherspoons with her friends (fingers crossed)!
