K. Bischoff, LFHCfS


Karyn Bischoff, MS, DVM
Member, Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists
Assistant Professor
Animal Health Diagnostic Center
College of Veterinary Medicine
Cornell University
Ithaca, New York, USA
<more about this member>

"Although I did 'locks of love' a dozen years ago, I have had luxuriant flowing hair for most of my career as a veterinarian and toxicologist - and in my line of work it hasn't been easy. My hair has been yanked by cats, munched by horses, llamas, and cows, splatted on by birds, clung onto by baby opossums, and I won't even get into the impromptu elephant post-mortem examination, except to say that it involved a chain saw. Currently, I teach toxicology to veterinarians-in-training, work in a diagnostic toxicology laboratory, and do research primarily on minerals, metals, and animal health."

<A more recent view of this member's hair>

"I am now reduced to what you see in the photo below. I am currently a senior researcher in Spain at Tecnalia in the Basque Country, working on systems supporting aging in place for seniors in the EU (of which group I am rapidly approaching). I received my PhD in computer science for the University of Colorado in a lab with 4 other grad students whose average age was 48. For fun I listen to very loud music, appreciate my Barbie collection and meditate."


K. Kania, LFHCfS


Katrin Kania, Ph.D.
Member, Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists

<even more about this member>

"Katrin has recently completed her PhD in the methods of construction of European Medieval garments but I know her as one of the two organiser of textilforum, a European workshop of historic textiles and experimental archaeology. The workshop was set up so that she could stage an experiment investigating the influence of a spindle whorl, in particular its MI (Moment of Inertia), the influence of the fibre and the influence of the spinner in the outcome of spinning. The experiment has now concluded, the data has now been processed and she is in the process of writing up."
(Nominated by H.J. Hopkins)

J. Lowenstein, LFHCfS


Jake Lowenstein
Member, Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists
Graduate student
Department of Ichthyology
American Museum of Natural History
New York, New York, USA
<more about this member>

"I would like to nominate Jake Lowenstein, ichthyological conservationist extraordinaire, who while devoting his cerebrum to cultivating an understanding of Congo cichlids in order to save both the fishes and the starving citizens from ecological destruction, has simultaneously devoted his cranium to cultivating the luscious locks shown in the attached photo. His humanitarian efforts are laudable but his coiffure is unmatchable. Jake is a 5th year graduate student at the American Museum of Natural History."
(Nominated by Vera te Velde)


C. Moraitis, LFHCfS


Christos Moraitis, BSc (Hons), MSc, PhD
Member, Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists
Independent Researcher
Epping, UK
<more about this member>

"I am proud to say that I haven't had a haircut in the last 25 years, or so. My doctoral work was centred on the role of free radicals in the heat shock response of yeast, something which I greatly enjoyed, both in terms of the research itself and in terms of the academic freedom. Having worked in the pharmaceutical industry for a number of years, I am currently in the market for a new challenge. Apart from my continuing interest in biological research, I'm also fascinated by advances in particle physics, enjoy good quality loud music, travelling abroad and mobile phone technology."


R. Rae, LFHCfS


Richard Rae, RT(R), RDMS, RVT
Member, Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists
Lead Vascular Technologist
Indiana Heart Physicians/St. Francis Medical Group
Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

"In my youth, people used to say, 'Look at all that hair!' In fact, it was so fluffy and thick on top that stylists joked that I blunted their scissors. Shortly after I began my medical ultrasound career, I began noticing that I was thinning on top with progressively more hairs in my brush... Now I find my diminished hairline a bonus - it's easy to maintain, distinguished, and good at reflecting light. It also counters my young appearance, as many patients find it hard to believe I've been performing ultrasound examinations and research for over 33 years!"


N. Tr'Ehnl & R. Schwegel, LFHCfS


Nahks Tr'Ehnl & Rosemary Schwegel
Member, Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists
Graduate Student and Research Technician, respectively
Astrobiology Research Group
Arizona State University
Tempe, Arizona, USA
<more about one of these members>
<more about the other member>

"Rosemary Schwegel is a horticulturist and plant pathologist by training, currently working with Arizona State's astrobiology team on studies of the elemental requirements of Earth life, including ecosystems thriving in the 'extreme' environments of Yellowstone NP hot springs. Rosie chopped her hair back about 18 inches around 2005 and donated it to 'Locks of Love'; since then it's grown back to the point where she can sit on it again. Nahks Tr'Ehnl double-majored in art and astronomy/astrophysics as an undergraduate, and is now a graduate student at Arizona State studying the astrophysical origins of chemical elements and their importance in the formation of habitable planetary systems. Nahks has been paranoically (yes, that's a real word) avoiding people with scissors since about 1994."
