Ellen is a Psychology Ph.D. student working in the Race and Social Inequality Lab and Culture Co-Lab. She earned her B.A. in Psychology from Haverford College in 2015. Before beginning graduate school, Ellen served as a Social Science Research Coordinator at the Stanford Graduate School of Business Behavioral Lab and as a Research Manager at Stanford SPARQ: Social Psychological Answers to Real-world Questions.

Her research focuses on race, social class, and economic inequality and is aimed at addressing real-world social issues. When she's not in the lab, Ellen enjoys playing with other people's pets, long hikes in Marin, and baking cakes.
