Liz Thompson, PhD
Liz founded Transition Elements in 2019 after 20 years in the oil industry. Formerly an explorationist on the Norwegian continental shelf, she came to see the exciting possibilities in the accelerating transition. Aware of the timelines and risks involved in resource exploration, her earlier experience in designing, testing and using geological software for oil industry technology firms generated a vision for similar innovation in mineral exploration.
The need to develop less intrusive, more sustainable resource projects is a priority for her and for Transition Elements.
Liz holds a Ph.D. in structural geology from Imperial College
