Friday, March 28th, 2014

Alex Dyson has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). John Whittle, who nominated him, says:

Dr Alex Dyson embodies and exemplifies the core values of the Luxuriant flowing hair club for scientists.  As a post doc at University College London in Clinical Physiology, Alex Dyson spends his time flamboyantly investigating the physiology of critical illness. A distinctive sight around the lab with his untrammeled tresses, thought to be the source of his cognitive powers, Alex is proud to have been nominated to join this respected institution.

Hannah Julich joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Sunday, February 9th, 2014

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

It is hard to tell from the high winds, but my hair falls well past my waist. Here, it assists me in taking sediment cores from a frozen lake. I am a doctoral student in ecology and environmental science at Iowa State University. My research in paleolimnology focuses on using palynological techniques to reconstruct landscape changes and water quality through time. The hideously dangerous chemicals necessary for processing my samples have earned me the nickname ‘the hydrofluoric acid lady,’ typically uttered by wide-eyed undergraduates who studiously avoid my lab bench. (On the web page with my official lab profile, my hair in a bun for reasons of laboratory safety.)

Rik McRae joins the Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

Rik McRae has joined the Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I humbly submit these two photos, the first taken as a grumpy undergraduate marine chemist in the early 1990′s, the second more recent, giving ample evidence of the tide going out up top, is me setting up a telescope for solar observing as an outreach event at the Cheltenham Science Festival. The benefit of being an astronomer is that it gives good justification for covering up the balding pate with a natty knitted bobble hat. When not actively engaged in astronomy/astrophotography, I while away the daytime hours as Research and Development Manager at Sartorius Stedim Lab Ltd, developing laboratory consumables for protein purification by ultrafiltration and membrane chromatography. Among the things I work on are centrifugal concentrators.

Neil Martin joins Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Neil Martin has joined the Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

It is one of my life’s greatest achievements, even more than being able to unscrew jar tops successfully for ladies, to be admitted to the Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists. This photograph was taken circa 1985. At this point I was in the 6th form, had probably just been suspended with a chum for writing a scurrilous magazine, and had this taken by a friend who’s dad was a photographer. You can see incipient, inchoate signs of a budding career in science from the bowtie. Also, the alcohol. You can see more recent trichology here. I am not letting the Club down. I will be a worthy member.

Josephine A. Beck joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Josephine A. Beck  has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). She says:

Since I started in chemistry I’ve worked in industrial chemistry, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices. From bubbling bench work to analytical instrumentation, I’ve loved every minute. The hardest part was always having to tie up my hair and sometimes contain it in a bouffant bonnet. This picture was taken after I gave 27″ of my hair to “Locks of Love“, the rest is in my will for them.
