Halfdan Skjerning joins the Luxuriant FFF Hair Club for Social Scientists (LFFFHCfSS)

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Halfdan Skjerning  has joined the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or/and Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists (LFHCfSS). He says:

I study Health-Related Quality of Life in children and adolescents with celiac disease. I am fascinated by the resilience or stubbornness of the beard. When trimmed down, it keeps growing out again – it’s like it doesn’t learn, or maybe it has a will of its own. Equally intriguing are the reactions of other people towards the beard; some want to touch it and look upon it with envy, while others are intimidated by it. You can tell a lot about people from their reactions to a beard.

Scientists let their hair down, welcome social scientists to the club

Monday, February 9th, 2015

The joint membership committee of the The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS), the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS), and the Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS) is proud and pleased to sheepishly announce the creation of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Social Scientists.

The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Social Scientists (LFHCfSS) was founded this month, February 2015, after the joint membership committee decided that it had been purely snooty in excluding social scientists from the clubs.

These are conjoined quadruplet clubs — members of each club are accorded full honorary privileges of the other clubs.

The members of all four clubs can and should be seen and admired online.

UPDATE (February 10, 2015): Almost immediately, the membership committee moved, unanimously, to make the new club fully inclusive, thus changing the name to Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists (LFFFHCfSS).

Samuel M. Flaxman  has joined both the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS) and the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

Dr. Flaxman studies speciation theory, with particular attention to the genomic patterns left by processes at work during the formation of two species from one.  He is currently building evolutionary population simulations in order to develop quantitative genomic predictions from null and alternative hypotheses.  He holds the title of “Best Mullet, 2013,” awarded for his entry as “The Wolverine” in the 2013 Mountain Sun Mullet and Chops Contest (2/28/13).  His recent publications include “Theoretical models of the influence of genomic architecture on the dynamics of speciation” and “Genetic hitchhiking and the dynamic buildup of genomic divergence during speciation with gene flow“.
