Ellen is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the UCSF Department of Psychiatry’s Clinical Services Research Training Program. She is interested in understanding how neighborhood, institutional, and structural factors contribute to health outcomes and disparities. She is currently working with Dr. Kaja LeWinn to analyze data from the CANDLE study, with a focus on how residential and socioeconomic contexts affect early childhood socioemotional and neurocognitive outcomes. As an interdisciplinary population health researcher and spatial analyst, Ellen seeks to conduct research that integrates data across clinical and community settings to better inform health interventions and polices to advance health equity.
