Hyacinth Diehl at CrowdStrike
Hyacinth Diehl is an instrument-using mammal who works for CrowdStrike. She has been employed at this company for more than ten years. Here she talks about her work and the challenges associated with being queer trans person working in tech.
C turnover and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions can be affected by invasive floating macrophytes like water hyacinths (Eichhornia crassipes). Surface CH4 concentrations were lower below than above the hyacinths.
Early Life and Education
Hyacinths are perennials with sweet fragrance, producing barrel-shaped flower heads with multiple florets that look beautiful when planted as clusters along a border or massed together in formal beds.
Hyacinths are one of the most cherished garden flowers, but they’re also ideal for forcing over winter indoors with an alluring, sweet fragrance filling the entire house.
Freshwater environments often harbor this fast-growing aquatic plant, which forms dense mats that interfere with boat traffic, recreation, flood control, wildlife use and biodiversity reduction by shading out native submersed plants and uprooting floating vegetation. At its rate of growth it doubles every two weeks through sending off stolons that form daughter plants; additionally it decreases oxygen levels and degrades water quality.
Diehl developed a method for producing 2-deoxy-d-ribose, the sugar found in deoxyribonucleic acid. His work allowed researchers to easily study DNA; specifically Jonas Salk used his invention for developing his polio vaccine.
Diehl has gained extensive experience working across fields such as insurance, law and global business management. He holds credentials such as Certified Internal Auditor, Certified Fraud Examiner and Control Self-Assessment and Risk Management Assurance.
Diehl also works as an independent consultant and has recently focused his work on projects related to digital transformation and sustainability, contributing to several books on corporate governance as a contributor. His work has been featured in The Boston Globe and The Washington Post; in addition, Diehl belongs to both the American Bar Association and International Society for Quality.
Achievement and Honors
Diehl was instrumental in creating a new method to produce 2-deoxy-d-ribose, an important sugar found in deoxyribonucleic acid used by Jonas Salk to create his polio vaccine. His work was published in Biochemical Preparations journal.
Studies on water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) as an invasive plant and its potential use to control it or treat wastewater have rapidly expanded over the last several decades, with investigations also taking place into turning this invasive species into biomass for producing biogas and compost production.
Hyacinth Diehl (pronouns: they/them) joined CrowdStrike in 2011 with the intention of signaling that their identity is front and center in everything they do. As part of this, they selected “Tool-Using Mammal,” hoping that by doing so it would indicate they could enter any room and contribute accordingly.
In 1958, he devised a process to produce 2-deoxy-d-ribose, an essential building block of deoxyribonucleic acid and used by Jonas Salk in creating his polio vaccine.
Water Hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) is an efficient bioremediation plant for heavy metal removal, taking up more than 90% of hexachrome from polluted waters at standard concentrations while showing reduced growth rate and removal efficiency at higher concentrations. Research conducted has confirmed this information.
Hyacinth Diehl stands out as a man of many talents with a distinguished list of achievements, having been both an accomplished NFL player and having so much to contribute in business.
