Ellen grew up in Jersey and received her PhD in Ocean and Earth Science from the University of Southampton in 2012. She moved to Australia in 2011 and since then has worked in both industry and academia, on projects related to the environmental sustainability of industrial processes and resilience of remediated landscapes to climate change. She has also been involved in national scientific policy design. In 2018 Ellen was chosen to travel to Antarctica to participate in Homeward Bound, a ground-breaking leadership, strategy and science communication initiative for women in science. In 2019 she was named as one of Science & Technology Australia's 60 'Superstars of STEM'. She is a proud advocate for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and strives to make science and engineering more accessible to young people.
