Ellen is interested in exploring environmentally and economically sustainable solutions to increase access to water and energy resources in low and middle income countries. After earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland, Ellen spent three years with the Peace Corps building small-scale water systems in rural communities in the Dominican Republic. She then joined the William Davidson Institute, an international development research institute housed at the Ross School of Business, where she developed market-based solutions to address global health supply chain challenges in emerging economies.
