Olena Korzun studied history at Vinnytsia State Pedagogical University (1996–2001) and agrarian sciences at Vinnytsia Agrarian University (2005–2007). She participated in the international programs “The Road to Democracy” at the Faculty of Political Science and International Studies (2008) and “New Approaches to the Methodology of Research and Teaching” at the East-Central European School in the Humanities (2010), both at the University of Warsaw. She received her Candidate of Historical Sciences in 2010 and her Doctor of Historical Sciences in 2020, with a focus on the history of agrarian science. She has been a researcher at the National Scientific Agricultural Library of the National Agrarian Academy of Sciences of Ukraine since 2018. Additionally, she taught history of science at the National Pirogov Memorial Medical University, Vinnytsya (2007–2017), and agrarian history of Ukraine at the National Scientific Agricultural Library (2020).

Olena’s past research includes general characteristics and tendencies of agricultural experimentation in Ukraine during World War II, and the regional aspect of origin and formation of agricultural experimentation in Ukraine in late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. She is a member of the editorial board for the historical-bibliographic series Аграрна наука України в особах, документах, бібліографії (Agrarian science of Ukraine in persons, documents and bibliography) in which she participated in the creation of collections of documents illustrating scientific support of Ukrainian agriculture in 1940–1946 (2012) and 1920–1930 (2020-2021). Olena was a 2011 recipient of the Polish History Museum fellowship. In 2019, she also received a fellowship from the Deutsch-Ukrainishe Historikerkommission/Німецько-українська комісія істориків (German-Ukrainian historical commission). At the MPIWG, Olena is collaborating with Dmytro Korzun to research the relationship and mutual influences between German and Ukrainian scholars in the study of agrarian issues at different stages of historical development from the nineteenth to mid-twentieth century.
