Ann Nelson, a theoretical physicist at the University of Washington, Seattle (UW), died on 4 August in a hiking accident. She was 61 years old. Nelson leaves behind a legacy not only as an award-winning researcher but also as both a dedicated mentor and an unwavering advocate for diversity and inclusion in the physical sciences community.

Nelsonís focus on physics beyond the standard model included work on dynamical supersymmetry breaking, CP violation, and composite Higgs models. She was a recipient of the J. J. Sakurai Prize for Theoretical Particle Physics (2018) and a Guggenheim Fellowship (2004), and she was elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

3. Oh dear. And while hiking?

Did she fall and break a major bome? Hit her head?

Science will miss her.
