Research Interests & Current Projects

Elena served as research assistant in a USAID project on child welfare in Ukraine and taught internationally focused courses in the Family and Human Services Program at the UO College of Education. During the 2013-14 academic year, she coordinated the Student Internships’ Exchange for Child Protection (SIECP) Project, which received the US-Russia Civil Society Partnership Award for promoting the partnership and collaboration among academic, public and non-profit organizations at regional and international levels. The UO and Russian undergraduate students enhanced their cross-cultural understanding of social problems in both countries and advanced their professional skills by participating in seminars in Eugene, and through an internship in Russia.

Last year, Elena implemented a new project: Prevention Bridges to Youth Positive Change in the Department of International Studies. This Project has received the US-Russia Peer-to Peer Dialogue Award for 2016-17 and UO undergraduate students were actively involved in its implementation.
