I love figuring how to take what is often a firehose flow of complex environmental data and make it simpler and easy to understand. And that’s a pretty good metaphor for our team: we are technologically sophisticated, creative, and easy to work with.
Andrew Stoeckle is an ERG vice president with more than 30 years’ experience analyzing environmental information, improving data quality, and developing software for government clients. He is particularly skilled at making complex information understandable and contextualized so that end users can make sound decisions and take effective actions.
Andrew provides key technical input and management oversight on data-driven analyses used to characterize environmental conditions within and measure performance of facilities, industry sectors, regulatory programs, and geographic areas. For example, for environmental justice initiatives focused on communities, service areas, facilities or identifiable populations, he designs analyses and tools that characterize community demographics, conditions that represent environmental burdens, economic opportunity, and access to governmental decision-makers. For reviews of permit applications, he conducts cross-media, multi-source cumulative impact assessments to determine if nearby communities are underserved or overburdened. Andrew applies these same approaches to compare the relative performance of regulatory agency enforcement efforts in communities with EJ concerns versus the country as a whole and, uses predictive analytics to project facility compliance status and enforcement targeting.
Andrew holds a B.S. in biology from Stanford University and an M.S. in environmental health management from the Harvard School of Public Health. Outside work, he is continually charmed by the complexity and beauty of natural structures and patterns, from Nidulariaceae fungi to speciation.
