In my opinion, her attire is not appropriate for working in a chemistry lab. And yes, she is standing in a real postgraduate-level lab.
Update2: I would do her because, even in her somewhat extra-toned form, she is more feminine than the land cows and marginally cute cunts that form the bulk of average women in the west.
Update: same girl? based on the language of her book title, she is most likely french.
