At our 8th Annual Energy Science & Technology Conference, I learned that Dr. Elizabeth A. Rauscher had recently passed. Although I have known about her for a long time, I have never had the honor of meeting her. Many people that I know working in this field has been inspired by her vast contributions over the years. Please take a moment to learn about work.

Below is Dr. Rauscher’s bio:
She has worked in the field of Nuclear and Astrophysics at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California and Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. She has been a consultant at Stanford Research Institute, for NASA on the Space shuttle and a delegate to the United Nations. She is author of more than 275 scientific paper, 6 books, and has 5 U.S. patents. Her main fields of research include: Nuclear & Atomic Physics, Biomedical Engineering & Geophysics Monitoring and Data Analysis
From a very early age as a young girl, Elizabeth knew that her passion and destiny lay with her desire to fundamentally do good in the world, and to provide a meaningful impact on the way in which we – humankind – navigate.
With her early insights into the nature of Energy and Space-time dynamics, Rauscher chose to pursue the language of physics and mathematics to help give voice to these insights. As such, she was among the first two females to graduate with a PhD. in her field of research, and has subsequently been pioneering her way forward with countless publications, lectures and laboratory experimentation. She is a keen contributor to the fields of both theoretical and applied physics, and her personal patents and research positions demonstrate this commitment.
Additionally, Rauscher’s work has had profound influences on numerous fields of science, lending vital contribution to Nobel-worthy works. We are currently in the process of creating a detailed mind-map that will accurately identify the scope of influence and relatedness that her insights and contributions have touched.
Most excitingly, Dr. Rauscher is no where near finished! Though her career could easily conclude with her distinguished honors and discoveries, Rauscher still has more to contribute before she can finally acquiesce to some form of retirement!
