Cohort Year: 2020-21

Elena received her PhD in Agricultural and Applied Economics at the University of Missouri, where she studied how information impacts the decisions that stakeholders make on new food technologies and agriculture. Under the supervision of Dr. Nicholas Kalaitzandonakes, Elena worked at the Food Equation Institute and Economics and Management of Agrobiotechnologies Center, investigating the social acceptability of Genetic Engineering, from farm to the end consumer. During her time at Mizzou, Elena founded and co-founded several organizations whose focus was food security and student success. Elena’s undergraduate degree is in International Economics and Politics with a focus on Diplomacy. Before receiving her PhD, she graduated with honors with a Master’s degree in Business Economics and Management from the Mediteranean Agronomic Institute of Chania and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Because of her background as an applied economist, Elena is prepared to speak the language of both researchers and policy makers to help Missourians and their families achieve better lives.
