Elena is currently working on Theme 3 of ProAct, which is a research project funded by the Dutch Research Council (NWO). ProAct stands for Proactive Management of Antarctic Tourism: Exploring the Role of ATS Principles and Values and Best Practices Beyond the ATS. For over one year and a half she worked on this research as a PhD candidate at Tilburg University. Since 1st November 2022, she is working as a PhD candidate at the Arctic Centre.

Her PhD project concerns legal research and focuses on jurisdictional issues in relation to Antarctic tourism. This research project aims to develop a (comparative) legal study of the jurisdictional scope of the domestic implementing legislation of all Contracting Parties to the Environmental Protocol to the Antarctic Treaty. This study is aimed at ascertaining the Contracting Parties’ (collective) reach in terms of jurisdiction over tourism activities in the Antarctic Treaty area, to identify any shortcomings, and to suggest policy recommendations.
