Ellie Wallace is an Ecology PhD student advised by Dr. Timothy Walsworth in the Department of Watershed Sciences. Her research is focused on developing models of how invasive common carp (Cyprinus carpio) populations respond to alternative control methods (ie: targeted poison bait and YY stocking), and conducting a cost-benefit analysis to inform fisheries management decisions for Utah Lake. She graduated with a BS in Biology from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 2016, and an MS in Marine and Environmental Biology from Nicholls State University in 2018. After earning her master's degree, Ellie worked as a teaching assistant at the University of Notre Dame Environmental Research Center (UNDERC), and as an NMFS North Pacific Groundfish fisheries observer on commercial fishing vessels in the Bering Sea. In her free time, she enjoys true crime podcasts, reading sci-fiction/mystery novels, and cooking.
