Research Interests

Researching how functional traits within microbial communities are structured in relation to the biogeography of said communities.


Eli's current research focuses on gaining a broader understanding of high elevation aquatic microbial communities in the Colorado Rockies, and how they are structured by both abiotic and biotic interactions. His future goals are to improve our understanding of how the interaction between dispersal and local selection pressures regulate the biogeography of microbial communities.
