I’ve worked in various roles in the Library for the past eight years, and I’m currently an Academic Support Officer and an Academic Support Librarian. I also finished a PhD in History from Warwick back in 2013. When I’m not working I like to spend my weekends pretending to be a Viking.

I work in the Library as Academic Support Librarian, mainly supporting WBS. When I’m not in the Library I enjoy going to the gym, socialising with friends, a good TV boxset and the odd bit of DIY!

I work in the Library as an Academic Support Librarian for the Physical Sciences, Engineering and Classics, ensuring that resources are in place and that staff and students are able to make the best use of them.  This wide range of subjects means I never have a chance to get bored!  Outside work I enjoy music (I sing in the University Chorus and go to as many concerts as I can) and travel (I’m just back from a study tour visiting ancient sites in Albania and Macedonia).

I‘m the academic support librarian for Law and Economics. I like walking  in the hills or near the sea when I get the chance, and I often talk to the ducks on campus. 

 

James Taylor

james.taylor I work in the Library as a Reading Lists Project Officer, attending to all your reading list-related needs. I’m also Associate Fellow in Film and Television Studies, and recently completed my PhD on the adaptation of the superhero genre from comics to film. Wealth and fame I ignored, pursuing academia as my reward.

I work in the Library as the Student as Researcher Project Officer for the Sciences.  I started my Bachelors as a mature student in 2005 and enjoyed it so much I’ve since gone on and done a PhD.  I’m obsessed with windmills, love watching 1960s British films and, in spite of living in the landlocked East Midlands, I also like writing songs about the sea.

 

 

Kate Courage

Kate Courage photo for blog 2017I am an Academic Support Librarian, here to give targeted help to students and staff studying and researching English, Philosophy, French, Italian and Hispanic. A little while ago I was a Warwick student myself, and I remember student life here pretty well. Nowadays, I like reading ghost stories, visiting old houses, bird watching and listening to folk music… and inflicting some of these things on my small children!

 

Nick Bostock

I previously graduated Warwick with a BA in Classical Civilisation and I now work as Community Engagement Officer at the Library. When I’m not working, you can usually find me snuggled up somewhere with a nice cup of Rooibos.

 

 

Oriane Boulay

Oriane I work in the Library as Academic Support Officer, where I develop online training material and help with enquiries and workshops. Outside work, you’ll find me at the airport or in the Parisian metro… Visiting family and friends and stocking up on Dijon mustards, (smelly) cheese and pains au chocolat.

 

 

 

Richard Perkins

richard-perkins2.jpgI’m an Academic Support Librarian, responsible for looking after the glamorous departments like Film & Theatre Studies.  I’m also part of the Library Social Media Team, so if our Twitter account gets a little surreal you can probably blame me. Outside work you’ll probably never see me, unless you too are sitting in a theatre.

 

 

Sofia Rios

SRI am working on a Joint PhD through the Monash Warwick Alliance within the Film, Media and Communications HDR Program. I am the blog editor for The Study Blog and PhD Life. I have lived in Mexico, Texas and Australia and as such I live in a constant state of missing tacos, half-and-half iced tea, and tim tams.

Charles Hand

Charles Hand

I was a postgraduate medical student at Warwick. Most of my time was spent on hospital placements around Warwickshire: trying not to get in the way. The rest was split between research, humanitarian work with Medsin, sports and all kinds of activities with friends.

 

 

Charlotte Salter

Charlotte Salter

I was a part-time MA student at the University of Warwick, where I also worked as a Student Adviser for the Learning Grid. My time was usually spent feeding the campus ducks, reading fantasy and YA novels, writing, daydreaming, discovering endlessly creative ways to procrastinate, and (consequently) making/wearing elaborate fancy-dress costumes.

 

 

Eric Baron

Eric BaronI am a postgraduate student at Warwick. I like libraries. I also enjoys making art, usually in the form of short stories, poems and very rough ink drawings. However, I harbor no bias against bread sculpture or finger paints, and am currently working on a novel.

(Now working at Temple University, Philadelphia!)

 

Harriet Addy

My University life consists of studying Classics, which means cramming for a lot of Latin tests, and working as a student Adviser in the Learning Grids. I spend my days watching films, going out with friends and playing hockey.

(Now graduated!)

 

 

Karina Beck

I was an Academic Support Officer in the Library, where I helped with enquiries and workshops, and developed online training materials.  I love watching movies, am drawn to anything crafty or creative, and spend far too much money on pick ’n’ mix.

Lorna Khemraz

I’m a finalist at the Law School and if I am not buried in law books or fulfilling my adviser duties at the Learning Grid, I am working with refugees at the Coventry Law Centre. If I couldn’t make it out of bed, then I love to lounge at my home in Birmingham, try new food recipes, and watch sitcoms.

(Now graduated!)

 

 

Ondrej Bajgar

Ondrej Bajgar

My persona is split between between being an undergraduate mathematician, a Student Adviser in the Learning Grid and a Cooper in the student Food Co-op. Other than that I’m interested in pretty much everything. When not satiating this omni-interest by reading, I’m a keen orienteer, bicycle lover and devotee of Mahler’s music.

(Graduated 2014!)

 

Stephen Bagley

Stepehn Bagley

I am a history finalist at the University of Warwick. You will commonly find me in the various coffee outlets around campus hungover and/or sleep-deprived. I like to spend my time travelling, cooking and blogging.

(Now graduated!)

 

 

Stephen Soanes

I am a sometime-archivist, historian and PhD who has spent more years at Warwick than seems possible. These days you’ll find me working in the Student Admissions and Recruitment Office.  Outside work you’ll often find me out walking, doodling, dancing to synthpop, playing tennis, or with my head wedged in a book.

 

 

 

Thomas Bray

Tom Bray

I was a PhD student and seminar tutor in the Department of History. I split my time between my flat in Kenilworth and the comfy chairs in Curiositea. When I am not blogging, I like cats, cheese, and cycling, and some other things which don’t begin with C.

I was an MA in Writing student at Warwick and a Freelance Writer. When not writing about films, libraries and fashion, I’m working on short stories, poems and the odd novel. As well as this I enjoy suburban fiction, horror films, folk music, watches, chick-flicks and biscuits.

(Freelance writer and an Assistant Editor!)

I worked on the Library’s Student as Researcher project and hold BAMAPhD in English, Renaissance writing and food history. I also spend lots of time with Warwick students. We enjoy hanging off various apparatus or seeing which parts of our body we can spin on. All this helps me build on my stockpile of handy tips on what not to do at University.
