Ashley Edwards joins the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Ashley Edwards has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists™ (LFHCfS). She says:

For a while, early in my career as a scientist, I watched Australian lungfish spawning. Then, for even longer, I watched blue tongued lizards having sex. Now I mostly tell undergrad students about it. All the while I have been ‘that lecturer with the really long blonde hair’. But I’ll have you know that blonde is more than just a hair colour—blonde is a State of Mind. ANYONE can be blonde!
