Theodore Wickwire, M.F.S., Senior Environmental Scientist
Mr. Wickwire focuses on solving complex environmental problems using risk assessment, casual analysis, vulnerability assessment and weight-of-evidence approaches. He has applied his expertise to evaluating spills, legacy contamination, claims of loss or damage, environmental stressors and developing new methods to advance the evaluations. Mr. Wickwire has prepared numerous aquatic and terrestrial ecological and human health risk assessments in New England and around the United States. He has managed the development of models that incorporate wildlife behaviors and habitat suitability to increase the realism of exposure modeling. Using multiple types of evidence, he applies the causal analysis framework to provide a transparent and defensible path to identifying a probable cause and ultimately managing it to reduce impact. Mr. Wickwire also uses relative risk model approaches to understand the potential vulnerabilities of different alternative approaches to environmental management. These methods are applicable to diverse environmental challenges such as introduction of species or climate change vulnerabilities.
