She previously worked as a research officer at the LSE Centre for Women, Peace and Security, a visiting research fellow at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame, a postdoctoral teaching fellow at Bard College Berlin, and a work-package coordinator and researcher in the EU-funded project Cultures of Governance and Conflict Resolution in Europe and India at the Central European University.

She is currently co-editing (together with Slađana Lazić) a special issue on feminist and decolonial approaches to peace. Her research has explored issues of intersectionality, justice, and political economy in conflict-affected societies, with a particular focus on Bosnia and Herzegovina and Colombia. Beyond her academic work, Elena is a co-founder of Stella, which initiated the first mentorship programme for women and girls in higher education in Macedonia, aiming to build solidarity networks while taking into consideration concerns of first generation and minority women students in particular. She is also the initiator of the #WomenAlsoKnowBalkans list, in an effort to facilitate the inclusion of women in policy and media discussions in and about the region.
