Personal Bio

Dr. Andy Stoddard, based near Leesburg in Northern Virginia, is a Senior Water Resources Engineer with Dynamic Solutions, LLC in Knoxville, Tennessee. He has over four decades of experience performing federal, academic and consulting projects related to watershed hydrology, nutrient biogeochemistry, oxygen depletion, eutrophication, and aquatic ecology. He is nationally recognized as an expert for his applications of EPA-supported public domain models (EFDC, WASP, and QUAL2K) for Clean Water Act (CWA)-related studies. Dr. Stoddard earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Civil Engineering (B.CE) and Environmental Engineering and Science (M. EE) from Manhattan College and his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering and Science from the University of Washington. Dr. Stoddard was the principal co-author of a book that explored the cause-effect relationship of CWA effluent regulations on long-term trend improvements in national-scale water quality conditions. This study earned recognition from EPA’s Office of Water as “the first national-scale study to provide a rigorous evaluation of the effectiveness of the effluent regulation policies in achieving the ‘fishable and swimmable’ goals of the CWA.

Dr. Stoddard is a co-instructor for ‘Modeling Contaminant Migration through Multimedia Systems’ and ‘Environmental Monitoring and Sampling’ graduate courses at JHU Engineering for Professionals Program.
