Tad Pfeffer joins the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

Tad Pfeffer has joined the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I have spent my ~40-year research career studying the mechanics of glaciers and ice sheets and their role in sea level change. For much of that time, I used to preface lectures and conference presentations with the observation that there is something intrinsically funny about being paid to run around on glaciers and think about how they work. Sea level rise isn’t as funny as it used to be, but the principle still stands. My membership in the LFHCfS is simply consistent with this philosophy and reinforces the long and time-honored tradition of scientists getting away with nonsense generally. (PS The headshot on my Jefferson Fellows page is an old one, and my beard there is nothing to write home to Mom about. Here, instead, is a Getty photo of me taken by Natalie Cass at the Sundance Film Festival.)

David Plonka joins the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

David Plonka has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I am a research scientist and Internet researcher. My luxuriant flowing hair is as much the result of my hair-cutter leaving the employ of my barber shop many years ago (and my having not patronized any such establishment since) as it is the key element in an extended social experiment to determine what it takes for a scientist to be most often be referred to as “dude.” As such, it has most certainly improved my life.

Steve Trim has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I’m a molecular biologist and drug discovery scientist who founded Venomtech to deliver the next generation of biological therapeutics. My long flowing hair is a key part of who I am, and is much better than a business card for leaving a good impression.

Nastasia Okulova has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). She says:

I recently started my Ph.D studies in the field of micro and nanotechnologies working with polymers and surface structures. It is a pity that all this luxurious flowing hair has to be kept underneath the cleanroom suit while working in the lab every day.

Andrew Sayer has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I am a physicist working on atmospheric remote sensing. The long hair certainly helps in my research, which is basically examining things from a distance.
