Hello all, my name is Ross and I am Castle’s Services Manager for 2017-18.  I’m studying for a Masters in Physics. Within college, I have previously been involved in the Castle Technical Society, as well as rowing with University College Boat Club, and being a prolific social member of University College Tennis Club.
