Since then, Elaine has been an academic researcher, an English teacher, a marginal piano player, an adjunct professor, a late night grantwriter, a flawed-yet-well-meaning parent, a book cover designer, a community activist, an enthusiastic painter, and a not-dead-yet marathoner (not necessarily in that order). Today, she is the Director of the Tisch Community Research Center at Tufts University, working to center community voice in scholarship and knowledge co-creation. Elaine graduated with a BA from Boston College, an MA from Harvard Graduate School of Education, and an MS and PhD from UMass Boston.
