 +Prof. Alan Fitzsimmons from ARC said "This is a tremendous achievement. It is recognition of Elena'​s dedication and enthusiasm in setting up her investigations on the link between the original interstellar ices that went into forming the Solar system, and what we see on distant bodies beyond the planet Neptune."​ 
 Dr Frances Saunders, President of the Institute of Physics, said, “SET for Britain is a great opportunity for some of the country’s most impressive scientific talent to show off their research to politicians from across the UK.  I hope every exhibitor feels incredibly proud to have had their research shortlisted,​ and excited to show it off.” Dr Frances Saunders, President of the Institute of Physics, said, “SET for Britain is a great opportunity for some of the country’s most impressive scientific talent to show off their research to politicians from across the UK.  I hope every exhibitor feels incredibly proud to have had their research shortlisted,​ and excited to show it off.”
