Ellen is a fourth-year PhD student in chemical oceanography in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program. Broadly, her research uses Biogeochemical Argo floats to better understand carbon and oxygen cycles in the North Atlantic.

More specifically, her thesis work explores:

Ellen’s research also leverages the power of machine learning to help maximize the utility of observational datasets.

Before pursing her doctorate degree, Ellen completed her undergraduate degree at Cornell University (2020), where she received a B.S. in chemical engineering and a B.S. in earth and atmospheric sciences.
