Currently I am working on plasmon effects of metals using various dyes. I think I have luxurious hair because many of the dyes I work with are attracted to my flowing locks, and I often leave the lab with Rhodamine or Nile Blue colored highlights in my hair.
P.S. If there is also a club for Lusciously Pale Scientists as a Result of Too Many Hours in the Lab, can you please forward this picture to them? Thank you."

Assistant Professor, Department of Computational Social Science, Kransnow Institute for Advanced Study
Affiliate, Departments of Environmental Science and Policy, Geography, and Geoinformation and Earth Systems Science, College of Science
George Mason University
Fairfax, Virginia, USA
<more about this member>

"I interviewed for my current highly interdisciplinary position at George Mason on a 95 degree day in April, on which my luxuriant flowing tresses were nothing short of Medusa-like, meeting with the Provost and deans of three colleges as part of the interview process. The university subsequently made me a very attractive offer well tailored to my diverse strengths and activities. I accepted the job with confidence, knowing that if my hair were acceptable to the broader university community, my ideas as a whole were likely to be as well. My research on agent-based models of land-use and land-cover change resides at the ecotone between economics and geography."

<more about this member>

"I am pursuing my PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC. I received my master of arts in Clinical Psychology from the University of Colorado at Denver, and loved studying the brain and conducting research so much that I switched over to Neuroscience. I am currently investigating the underlying neural mechanisms of vulnerability to addiction. Specifically, I am interested in how stress and gonadal hormones interact with drug reward across the lifespan. I am a natural sandy blonde, but like to lighten my locks with highlights."
