Eli is a second-generation Filipino with an avid love for both science and advocacy. Their love of science was kindled at a young age, admiring insects while running around outside: something they still do to this day. Growing up as a child of immigrants and as a nonbinary person, they recognize the need for support in education for their communities, which has been their goal through their career as a science communicator.
They believe and work towards accessible spaces with justice, equity, and support for all. Eli has a BS in Biology with a minor in Journalism and 7 years of social justice work serving disabled communities, POC, and the LGBTQ+ community.
