Member, Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists

Department of Chemistry
University of Pennsylvania

<more about this member>

"I have been told I have amazing hair ever since I was a little lass.  My friends usually describe me as the Asian girl with the big smile and long, flowing hair.  I am an information technology director who supports and enables the computing needs of researchers across several departments.  When my researchers are finally tired of looking and feeling like Neanderthals hunched over their computer screens, I use my skills as a yoga teacher to make them Homo Erectus again."


A. Hestroni, LFFFHCfSS


Amir Hestroni
Member, Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists
Associate Professor
KOÇ University

<more about this member>

"There is no doubt that I have amazing hair.  On my Facebook page, many of the posts deal with my hair.  Note the number of followers (over 50k people). My studies are concerned mainly with long term cultivation effect of TV viewing and the appearance of objectionable content on the home screen."

"Mikko is a network scientist and Assistant Professor in complex systems.  He has the most luxurious and flowing hair of any scientist I know.  Maybe his hair is the visual representation of the networks he researches, especially when not brushed and full of knots (or nodes).  Like his hair, he will also eventually untangle the science of complex networks."
(Nominated by Ulrike Werner)

"I'm a junior researcher involved in research projects on social anthropology, higher education research, and science communication.  I guess my flowing hair often helps me to make a good impression during interviews and other moments of qualitative data collection."
(NOTE: Since joining this hair club, this member's title has changed from "Junior Researcher" to "Analyst")


W. Röntgen, LFHCfS


Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen
Historical Honorary Member
Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists

More information on this member is available on the Historical Honorary Members page

Known as the "Father of Radiology", he discovered and investigated X-Rays while experimenting with vacuum tubes in 1895.  He named them "X-Rays" because they were an unknown form of radiation and he refused to patent his discovery.  He received the very first Nobel Prize in Physics (1901).  Other honors include a peak in Antarctica, a radioactive element (Rg), and a unit of measurement named in his honor.

Nov 8th, the anniversary of his discovery, is observed both as International Day of Radiology and also as World Radiography Day.

HAIR LEGACY
Images of Röntgen's beard helped inspire Radiologist Philipp Weisser (below) to grow his own beard, which in turn qualified him to join the hair club.  Mr. Weisser mentioned this inspiration when he joined the LFHCfS, prompting the club to investigate and decide that, yes, Röntgren did indeed have impressive facial hair!


P. Weisser, LFHCfS


Philipp Weisser

Member, Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists
Radiologist

<more about this member>
<another view of this member>

"During my medical research in the field of radiology at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University I grew a magnificent, luxuriant facial hair.  The reason for that is multifactorial.  First of all, science lets grow magnificent, luxuriant facial hair.  Further more, "radiation makes beautiful" (old German radiologist saying).  Last but not least, my beard is a homage to the Godfather of science in radiology, Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen.  The luxuriant flowing hair I had as a medical student perhaps qualifies me also for the Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)."
