Kevin Eliason

I am a MS student in the lab of Dr. Fred Benfield. I received my BS in environmental science from Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, West Virgina. After graduating I worked with the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources as a freshwater mussel technician. I am interested in benthic freshwater environments. My research project will deal with the response of macro-invertebrate communities to the removal of riparian rhododendron.
