UMP Director Jason De León named #5 on Futur-ish.com’s 2014 Stylist Scientist List. According to their website:

“October 2014. Future-ish is pleased to announce our fourth 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.
