She was one of the first women to obtain a PhD in the USA, and went on to careers in scientific research, government, academia, and business, holding several laser-related patents. She married physicist Arthur Bramley in 1943. Elected an IEEE Fellow (1966), she received the WISE Lifetime Achievement Award (1985) from the InterAgency Committee on Women in Science and Engineering.
