Elana just moved to Washington, DC from Seattle, Washington. She first became interested in nuclear and security issues when studying international politics at Whitman College in Washington State. There, she worked as a Research Assistant examining media portrayals of the negotiations on Iran's nuclear program. After returning from a cultural exchange program in Taiwan, she's looking forward to being politically involved at the nexus of international peace and security issues and communications advocacy.
Elana is looking forward to exploring DC's museums, art, and food! To get away from the screen, she enjoys running, cooking delicious vegetarian food, and venturing into the outdoors.
