Meet the Hamilton e-Tuts!

The e-Tuts team is a group of University of Waikato students who are here to help staff and students in their use of teaching and learning technology tools. Here is our team on the Hamilton campus.

Aaminah Ghani

Assalamu'alaikum! My name is Aaminah and I am currently a third year Bachelor of Management studies student here at Waikato. In my free time I love to hang out, go hiking and read a whole ton of books. I am super excited to be a part of the e-Tuts team as I get to work with incredible people and experiment with different kinds of technology!

Jobenz Manoa

Talofa lava! My name is Jobenz Manoa and I come from Samoa. I was awarded a scholarship through the New Zealand Aid Programme to study for my Masters in Cybersecurity here at the University of Waikato. I enjoy being part of the e tuts team because it allows me to interact with people from various backgrounds which gives me different perspectives on technology and how it is used. In my spare time, I like playing squash and to Netflix and chill at home.

Kévin Maurin

Bonjour ! I am Kévin, PhD student from France who started at the Faculty of Science and Engineering in September 2017. My background is mostly composed of research projects and internships in ecology and molecular phylogenetics, but I also have a degree in ecological engineering. My PhD project is about using DNA to study the evolution of the divaricate habit, an almost endemic morphological peculiarity of the flora of New Zealand. When I am not PhD-ing, I am learning the violin, hiking, watching movies, and of course working as an e-Tut!

Libo Hou

Hello, my name is Libo Hou. I am working towards my master’s degree in Media and Creative Technologies. I enjoy combining new technologies and hope I can invent my own multimedia device that will change people’s lives in the future. I also enjoy composing music that is a fusion of different streams such as fugue, Baroque, Beethoven and Djent.  I am enjoying working as an e-Tut. It gives me a lot of chance to meet and talk to different people..

Sarah Ather

Assalamu'alaikum, kia ora and hello! My name is Sarah and I am currently a fourth year Law and Political Science student here at Waikato. In my free time I enjoy relaxing in the outdoors, reading and writing and playing with my cat Laila. I enjoy my job as an eTut, because it gives me a chance to experiment with different types of technology whilst also helping out others.
