The Wardens

The Wardens act as your first port of call for help and support for any matters relating to life in halls. They are also in charge of making sure the hall environment is conducive to study and living, and so will make sure that Wilkinson is sufficiently clean and quiet, particularly during night time. Together with the Hall Seniors, they organise social activities and events to help you to settle in, get to know one another and have fun in halls.

The wardens are here for you and because of you, so don’t hesitate to approach anyone of us for help or when you see us in the hall.

The wardens are on call every evening from 18:00 – 08:00 and throughout the weekend and holidays. You can reach out via the Duty Mobile on 07764 379 356 or 57717 from an internal phone.

Charlie Houston

Room M86 (email: cph211)

I’m Charlie and am one of the Subwardens in Wilkinson Hall. I grew up in the depths of Scotland before moving down south to London. I’m in my seventh (gulp) year at Imperial after completing an undergraduate in Aeronautics here, and now modelling heart bioelectricity in my PhD. My natural state is in running shoes, so you’ll undoubtedly see me heading out in them to explore one of London’s many parks. I also enjoy relaxing with a freshly brewed coffee and devouring books and freshly-baked goodies.

Welcome to the start of your Imperial journey!

Languages: English, a little bit of many!

Eve Chan

Room 186  (email: ysc416)

Hi! I’m Eve, welcome to Wilkinson Hall. I am currently completing my PhD studies in Chemical Biology. Born in Hong Kong and grew up by the sea in Eastbourne. I love exploring and (a little addicted with) taking photos – food, landscape or the lively streets of London!

I always enjoy a good film so let me know if you want to organise a movie night. When I’m not devouring desserts you may see me jogging in Hyde Park, or at the gym when it’s cold. Come find me if you ever need to talk something through or just feel like having a chat!

Languages: English, Cantonese and a little French.

Nicolas Cifuentes

Room 286 (email: nac17)

Hi everyone and welcome to Imperial and to the Wilkinson hall! I am Nicolas and I am in my second year as a PhD student in electrical engineering at Imperial. I was born and raised in Chile, a 4000 km long country in South America full of beautiful landscapes and strong earthquakes.

I am a big fan of board games, so let me know if you interested in organising a board game night among the members of the hall! I also enjoy playing squash, going to the gym and reading a book with a good coffee. I am looking forward to meeting you all and please don’t hesitate to come see me for a chat!
