Ellin holds a MSc Climate Studies (Environmental Policy) (Summa Cum Laude) from Wageningen University in the Netherlands. 

In 2017, Ellin was awarded the UEA Engagement Award for her efforts in engaging with the UK water sector and the UK public throughout her research, and her wider efforts to raise awareness around climate change, water conservation, and wider proenvironmental behavioural change.
