Our 2016 most stylish scientists: Debbie Berebichez, Marga Gual Soler, Andrea Hadjikyriacou, and Igor Stagljar

October 2016. Future-ish is pleased to announce our 6th 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.

This year we also included a separate listing of individuals added in 2016. And, similar to last year, we listed 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.
