Barbara Elvers obtained a Ph.D. in carbohydrate chemistry from the University of Hamburg in 1979. She then moved to the USA in 1980 where she was employed as a visiting scientist at SRI, Palo Alto, in the life science department. Since 1985 she has been serving in a variety of roles in publishing, first as a freelance translator of textbooks in chemistry, and since 1987 as an editor for the Ullmann's Encyclopedia, for which she is currently the editor-in-chief. One of the main subjects of her editorial work was the acquisition of authors and articles in the field of energy generation and fuels.
