A quick Q&A with the Committee’s newest member
Wilfried Genest studied at St John's between 2010 and 2016, first completing his BA in Natural Sciences and then his PhD in Neuroscience, researching the neuronal processes underpinning risk attitudes. Throughout his time at St John's, Wilfried was an active member of the Lady Margaret Boat Club (LMBC), rowing for the Men's first boat in the May Bumps headship-winning crew of 2016. He also held a number of leadership positions in both LMBC and CUCBC (the committee regulating all College rowing and racing at Cambridge). Wilf now works for a large multi-strategy hedge fund, where he focuses on special situations and merger arbitrage mostly in the equity space. He is also a full-time volunteer for the Samaritans.
