Elizabeth A. Silber

Senior R&D Scientist, Physics, Sandia National Laboratories

As a highly motivated and accomplished individual, I have dedicated my career to interdisciplinary research in several scientific areas, including physics, and planetary and earth science. I earned my PhD. in Physics and Planetary Science in 2014 (Western University, Canada) and graduated with an Honours BSc. (Specialization Astrophysics and Major in Planetary Science), with distinction, prior to that. Throughout my career, I have demonstrated a deep passion for learning and an insatiable curiosity about the world around me. My research interests are broad in nature, and I am constantly seeking new challenges and opportunities to expand my knowledge and expertise.

In addition to my research, I have also dedicated a significant portion of my career to teaching. With nearly a decade of experience in teaching physics, astronomy, and earth science courses, I have developed innovative and novel teaching methodologies. My extensive teaching experience spans from course and curriculum development to implementation, and I have enjoyed engaging with wide audiences, both in class and online.
