Clare Hall Fellow Appointed as Pro-Proctor

On the nomination of Clare Hall, Dr Annamaria Motrescu-Mayes has been appointed a Pro-Proctor for the academic year 2019–20.  Annamaria is the 14th woman to serve as a Proctor at the University of Cambridge, a post that has been traditionally held by men until 1979. She will then continue to serve as a Proctor 2020 - 2021 and as Deputy Proctor 2021 - 2022.
