Dr. D

So I have a full speed crush developing on this prof in my dept. He is my favourite kind of speaker: unassuming, cute, endearing accent who doesn't indulge in chest-thumping and grandiose statements while talking about his work. Instead, he lets the data do the talking, and credits the audience with the ability to appreciate it without spelling it out. Makes very elegant and simple presentations, without losing out on the science.  At the same time, he is excited about his work, quirky, funny, occasionally  indulges in thinking aloud at the podium, appreciates questions and admits to not knowing the answer if it is so. Generously credits his lab members and collaborators for all the work done. Every once in a while he rambles along, lost in thought. I find that incredibly cute. Of course too much rambling and hand-waving can be very frustrating, but he doesn't over do it.

Sigh and all.
