Elena is a Research Assistant at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society contributing to Youth and Media’s Online Privacy Project and varied Latin American initiatives. Her research interests include privacy and consumer protection, global digital rights advocacy, and the rich law/literature/technology intersection. Prior to joining Berkman Klein, Elena wrote an honors thesis on the new Library of Alexandria’s memory politics and poetics, and carried out university-sponsored independent studies on e-government and digital diplomacy as well as technology and privacy in the dystopian novel. She also worked for the Council on Foreign Relations, U.S. Mission to the United Nations, Alwan for the Arts, and a couple of Manhattan restaurants. Elena graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude from Columbia University where she majored in Comparative Literature & Society and Middle Eastern Studies. She loves to walk, eat, read, travel, and play (diatonic and occasionally chromatic) harmonica.
