About Elena

Moroz is an expert in mixed-methods evaluations, with over eight years of experience conducting rigorous impact and performance evaluations in sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, and Eastern Europe. Currently, Moroz is leading qualitative instrument development, data collection, and analysis for the evaluation of the Millennium Challenge Corporation’s (MCC’s) Fisheries Project in Morocco, which aimed to modernize infrastructure, increase artisan fishers’ access to markets, and improve the sustainability of marine resources. Moroz is also overseeing a large data collection effort for MCC’s Georgia education project, which includes rehabilitating school buildings and teacher trainings. This project also includes an impact evaluation and a performance evaluation.

Moroz has supported agricultural interventions focusing on irrigation, farmer training, and land reform in Burkina Faso, Morocco, and Senegal; education and workforce development in Ghana and Namibia; and water, sanitation, and health projects in Zambia. Before joining Mathematica, Moroz worked on evaluating water consumption and conservation in Zambia at Innovations for Poverty Action, and on maternal and child health in Zambia with Harvard University.

Moroz holds a master’s in international public health from Boston University, and a B.S. in Neuroscience and a B.A in International Development Studies from UCLA.
