He is interested in how people can and do allocate natural resources and in natural resource risks through time. He also has a strong interest in feedbacks among humans, ecosystems, and the management of coupled ecological-economic processes. Eli’s research is applied in a wide variety of systems including natural capital valuation, fisheries, infectious disease, groundwater, tropical forests, and grasslands.  He is extensively published and most recently named a Global Fellow by the Smart Prosperity Initiative.
