Name A Scientist

For ten years I have been writing the Cool Scientist column for Australasian Science, with three quarters of the columns going on to be included, in modified forms, in Forensics, Fossils and Fruitbats.

The January/February edition will include the 100th Cool Scientist, and April will be my 100th (two have been written by other people). I’d like to celebrate our decimal system with particularly exciting scientists, so I’m seeking advice. Who would you like me to interview? Or of you can’t think of names, what sort of scientists do you think would be suitable for a celebratory number? Should I be trying to track down a Nobel Prize winner, or would people prefer someone who is unjustly obscure? Are there specific fields you think don’t attract enough attention? Any feedback welcome.

About Stephen Luntz

I am a science journalist, specialising in Australian and New Zealand research across all fields of science. My book, Forensics, Fossils and Fruitbats: A Field Guide to Australian Scientists is out now through CSIRO Publishing. I am also a professional returning officer for non-government organisations. I'm very politically active, but generally try to restrict this blog to scientific matters.
