About Elena Lesley

Elena Lesley blogged regularly about the Khmer Rouge tribunal as a Fulbright Fellow in Cambodia from April 2008 to August 2009. Although she has since returned to the U.S., she continues to follow events at the court and to post occasionally. She is pursuing a masters degree in Global Affairs at Rutgers University and will be conducting thesis research this coming year in Cambodia and Rwanda on a grant from the Council of American Overseas Research Centers.

Before launching the Tribunal Report blog, Lesley spent a year at the Phnom Penh Post as a Henry Luce Scholar in 2004-2005. 

A native of Portland, Ore., her writing has appeared in newspapers throughout the U.S. and on Granta.com and The Huffington Post. From 2005-2008 she worked as a reporter at the St. Petersburg Times in Florida.

Lesley graduated from Brown University with a BA in Political Science.  She can be contacted at ELesley@alumni.brown.edu.
