Ellen manages projects that evaluate energy efficiency, emissions, and the resulting air quality and health effects due to energy production, storage, transport, and use. Ellen works with universities and research institutions focused on long-range transport of pollutants from upwind sources; localized air-quality effects of high-emitting sources; photochemical and atmospheric processing of pollutants; pollutant trends analysis during periods of emissions changes due to implementation of energy policies, environmental regulation, or changing markets; and cardiovascular and pulmonary effects from air pollution exposure. Ellen earned a Ph.D. in Environmental Health and Toxicology from the SUNY Albany School of Public Health.
