Her areas of interest in adolescent are reproductive justice, reproductive health, gender care, and advocating for youth, especially minority youth. In her free time, she enjoys going hiking and camping (like…in a tent) with her husband, traveling, yoga, keeping monstera deliciosa alive, and exploring all the local markets. Elena's current research project is analyzing possible missed opportunities to provide adolescent specific health care to youth admitted inpatient in the hospital.
