“All my colleagues are jealous of it”

” ‘The Ig Nobel is a respected award in academic circles. I think the Ig Nobel Prize is my biggest academic achievement and all my colleagues are jealous of it,’ says Minna Lyons, senior lecturer in psychology at the University of Liverpool and Finland’s only Ig Nobel Prize winner.” — [English translation from a September 1, 2017 article in Forum magazine called “Discoveries that made the world more fun“.]

Actually, there is at least one other Ig Nobel Prize winner from Finland.

Here’s a photo of Minna Lyons, on tour with other Ig Nobel Prize winners, in an event this past March at Stockholm University [click the image, and you can listen to an interview she gave to Sverige Radio]:
