VOS Linguistics


Zoe Website
Zoe Jensen – chair of the board (She/Her)
Hello there! I’m Zoe, a California girl who loves anything 80’s. After doing the BA Linguistics program at UvA, I’m excited to be starting the research masters in Linguistics and Communication this year! I’m always available if you have any questions or just want to chat. Hope to see you around 🙂
Celeste Website
Celeste Tacconi – treasurer (She/her)

Nice to meet you! I’m Celeste, a second year linguistics student from Italy. I’m beyond honoured to serve as treasurer and apply my insufferable saving habits to VOS’s budget 👹 while fostering community spirit amongst linguists of all years!

Indi Website
Indi Braun – Secretary (She/her)
Hi! I’m Indi, your Secretary for this year. That means I’m in charge of the member administration, answering E-mails and keeping everything organized. I’m a BA Linguistics student and have a specific interest in ancient languages. If you ever spot me at an event or in PCH, feel free to say hello!
Joanna Website
Joanna Walker – External Affairs (She/her)

Hi! I’m Joanna, and at the ripe old age of 28 I’m the grandma of the VOS board. I’m originally from the UK but have spent the last 7 years living in Germany and the Netherlands! I never really know what to write in bios but I guess all you need to know is I love linguistics, Lord of the Rings and long weekends at festivals (alliteration is also a secret love of mine). When I’m not furiously studying away in the PCH library (read: figuring out how to blend in with Gen Z) you can find me working at the best brunch restaurant in Amsterdam or raving away until the sun comes up. It’s all about that work-life balance, iykyk.
I’m extremely excited to be VOS’s external affairs officer this year and make VOS XXIII the greatest edition ever! Stay foxy, vosjes.

Gideon Website

Gideon van Wijk – Internal Affairs (they/he)

G’day! I’m Gideon and I’m in charge of Internal Affairs this year – that means I’ll be keeping yous up to date on the socials, website, and such. In linguistics I have a love for phonetics and phonology but I also have plenty of interests outside of that. I love a good chat so don’t be shy, say hi!
