CW3E Welcomes Carly Ellis

July 25, 2019

In July of 2019, Carly Ellis joined CW3E full-time as a Field Researcher. Carly has been working with CW3E since December of 2017, when she was brought on to assist with stream sampling and data collection. In 2016, she completed her Masters in Environmental Science and Policy at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire, where she spent two years working at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest. Her thesis focused on the variability of toxic aluminum in stream water. Prior to her Masters, Carly earned a BS in Geoscience and a BA in Environmental Studies from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in New York, where she studied water quality of the Finger Lakes and their tributaries.

As a member of the field research team at CW3E, Carly is excited to continue studying water, weather, and climate throughout the beautiful state of California. She primarily supports the observational efforts that are part of the Forecast Informed Reservoir Operations (FIRO) Program and Dr. Dan Cayan’s Hydroclimate Network. She feels lucky to be working on projects with large-scale applications and with such a genuinely engaged and interested group of people. Carly is looking forward to the next several years as CW3E expands its observational efforts in new diverse watersheds.
