Aaron Hoover joins LFHCfS

Aaron Hoover has joined the Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). His sister Melissa Hoover, who nominated him as a birthday gift, says:

Aaron Hoover, currently a Ph.D. candidate in mechanical engineering at UC Berkeley, and soon to be an assistant professor at Olin College in Boston. Aaron works with Professor Ron Fearing in the Biomimetic Millisystems Lab in EECS on rapid prototyping millirobots using long fiber-reinforced composite components. In addition to millirobots, he is also interested in biological systems (like the American cockroach and Anna’s hummingbird) that provide inspiration and insight for understanding and designing novel robots. He dabbles in personal fabrication and the intersection of computer science and mechanical design. His research has been featured on Australian television. Membership in the Luxuriant Hair Club will provide Aaron with a strong foundation for professional success, not to mention the groupies he’s sort of counting on, at this critical juncture in his academic career.
