Our 2015 most stylish scientists:
Debbie Berebichez, Marga Gual Soler, and Igor Stagljar

October 2015. Future-ish is pleased to announce our 5th annual list of the world's most stylish scientists.

The individuals on our list are changing the world with their innovative research and changing stereotypes every time they make an appearance expressing their oh-so-stylish selves.

Unlike a simple 'best dressed' list, our Stylish Scientist List isn't about trends and expensive labels, its about individuals expressing themselves and their individuality in their life and work. The individuals on the list prove that along with doing fascinating research, scientists are fascinating people, from athletes and techies to chefs and yes...even fashionistas.

We hope that our many and diverse stylish scientists will serve as role models to inspire everyone - from middle-schoolers and the Mom next door to movie stars and musicians - to become inspired, informed, and engaged in the numerous fields of science, technology, engineering, and math that shape our future, as well as help us understand the past.

Looking for even more stylish scientists? Check out Allie Wilkinson's This is What a Scientist Looks Like Tumblr or our Stylish Scientist label with posts from Olya Yarychkivska on her blog, Lunarka's Treasure Box. The newest entry into stylish scientist scene is Sartorial Science.


Want to nominate a stylish scientist for our next list? Our selection committee looks at 10 diverse variables including things like involvement in science, design, and culture, unique hobbies, STEM advocacy, and of course...a great personal sense of style. To nominate someone, simply send an email with a pic and short bio of the scientist (self-nominations are fab too) to studioF/at/future-ish/dot/com.


The Most Stylish Scientists of 2015
The 2015 list includes a wide range of scientists and researchers, from neuroscientists and archaeologists to physicists and technology experts - and they all prove that it is possible to be a person of both substance and style. Best of all, in 2015 we added TWENTY more individuals to each of our lists.

Who made the list? Who is in the top spot...the world's most stylish scientist? Wait no further, the full 2015 Stylish Scientist List is here.

The 2015 most stylish scientists: Debbie Berebichez, Marga Gual Soler, and Igor Stagljar.

That is correct, for 2015 we have a tie for or the #1 spot on the Women's list. We scored our list three different ways and each time we had a tie so we decided why not have two fantastic women this year. Another change for 2015: we now have so many scientists and researchers on our lists that we decided to list the top 10 scientists on each list in order to recognize them for their outstanding efforts in science, science communication, STEM outreach, etc. The rest of our scientists for each list are then listed alphabetically.
