Salutations! My name is Yelena. I was born in Kharkov, Ukraine and immigrated to the US at a young age. I grew up in Austin, Texas and moved to San Francisco to pursue a PhD in Neuroscience at UCSF. I speak English, Russian, and a little bit of French. I love art, culture, travel, meeting new people, reading, hiking, riding my bike, cooking vegetarian food, and animals.
