The Pennsylvania State University
Ellen Zelinsky completed her bachelor’s at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2016, with a degree in Biology and a focus in Plant Biology. After graduating, she worked as a Research Assistant in the lab of Tobias Baskin studying root growth and physiology. In 2018 she was accepted as a graduate student into the Plant Biology program at the Pennsylvania State University where she is currently working in the lab of Charles Anderson. Her research focuses on the role of pectin modifying enzymes on plant cell wall mechanics and in the growth and morphogenesis of Arabidopsis flowers. As a member of the Center for Lignocellulose Structure and Formation, she hopes her research may be used to improve our fundamental understanding of the plant cell wall and help with the development of new techniques to apply that research in the service of society.
