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)

Welcome to Wilkinson Hall! I’m Charlie and will be one of your friendly Subwardens this year.

I grew up in the depths of Scotland before moving down south to London and have stayed for about 8 years now. I completed my undergraduate here in Aeronautics and am now doing a PhD in computational cardiac electrophysiology (and yes – they are related!). Somewhere amongst that, I also spent a year with a Formula One team…

Oddly for someone living in London, I love being out and surrounded by green. If you need tips on which parks to visit around the city (there are surprisingly many!) or weekend day trip suggestions (the countryside is less than an hour away by train) then let me know. I also enjoy devouring books and freshly-baked goodies in roughly equal quantities.

Welcome to the start of your university journey, and I hope it’s everything you wished for!

Languages: English, some French, a little German, tiny bit of Spanish, a pinch of Cantonese and sprinkling of Japanese.

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!
