Eli is interested in the forces promoting the emergence and maintenance of sociality in group-living species. He is particularly interested in understanding the opportunities and challenges faced by social organisms and how individuals maximize their fitness in the complicated landscape of social living. He is currently investigating the relationship between social hierarchy, individual behavior and societal properties in the nepotistic, fission-fusion societies of the spotted hyena.
