Ellen Brandt

Health Services Research Specialist

Ellen is a Health Services Research Specialist in the Wisconsin Surgical Outcomes Research Program (WiSOR) in the Department of Surgery. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion & Health Equity from UW-Madison in 2021, during that time she also volunteered within a special education department and worked with infants/toddlers with disabilities in a respite care center. Ellen is currently working with PI Dr. Ben Zarzaur by providing support for his ongoing research projects which largely involve improving long-term outcomes for patients. Prior to joining WiSOR, Ellen worked for a medical records retrieval company. This helped her become very familiar with Epic, HIPAA guidelines, and interacting virtually with patients. Outside of work, Ellen enjoys biking, playing video games, baking, and spending time with friends and family.
