I’m Elizabeth (Libby) Ritz, a curious geologist with an educational background in fracture mechanics and a growing skill set. As a petroleum geoscientist for nearly 4 years, I have worked on projects across the globe and have formal or on-the-job training on topics ranging from geophysics, geochemistry, basin history, and petrophysics. I am currently an academic editor, helping researchers to communicate their work. I also have experience with data analysis, new technologies, project management, and science communication.

You can visit my publishing profile on ResearchGate or peer-reviewing profile on Publons. Feel free to contact me through LinkedIn (buttons above and below will take you there), or via my Stanford alumni address: lritz@alumni.stanford.edu

Pictures, clockwise: playing with erosion and deformation bands in the Valley of Fire State Park, hiking across a boulder field to core an outcrop in the Californian Sierra Nevada Mountains, napping on pillow basalt on the shore of Lake Superior, taking a break at the peak of a mountain in the Swiss Alps.
