Elena Korshenko received her BA from the Moscow State University, with an exchange year at the Waseda University in Tokyo and got a MA from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London. Subsequently she worked at the Moscow office of the Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun, which inspired her interest in comparative politics and Japanese party system in particular. As part of her fieldwork, she participated in the 2016 Japanese Upper House election as an observer and completed two six-month research stays at the Institute of Social Science, the University of Tokyo. The second stay in 2018/2019 was supported by the Japan Foundation fellowship award.
