Dr. Philip Goodrum is a senior science advisor with more than 25 years of experience in quantitative risk assessment and environmental modeling, specializing in applications to human health and ecological risk assessment, sediment remediation, groundwater compliance monitoring, and natural resource damage assessment (NRDA).  He is a recognized national leader in statistical sampling methods, probabilistic risk assessment, and lead exposure modeling.  Dr. Goodrum is a board-certified toxicologist with extensive experience with emerging contaminants and yet-to-be regulated chemicals such as perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Dr. Goodrum has developed strategies to characterize and manage risks associated with emerging contaminants, pesticides, metals, PCBs, methyl mercury, dioxin, and petroleum hydrocarbons.  He represents clients in negotiations with state and federal regulators, trustees, and stakeholder groups on issues related to data interpretation, statistical analysis, modeling, and risk characterization.  He was the East Coast regional manager of Integral’s Ecological Services Group for 2 years and is currently a senior science advisor responsible for project scoping, coordination of multidisciplinary technical teams, client communication, scheduling, and work product delivery. Dr. Goodrum has developed quantitative solutions for numerous complex, high-profile contaminated sediment and floodplain sites, established corporate best practices in quantitative methods (e.g., exploratory data analysis, statistics, visualization of data), and mentored and trained staff in these areas.  He is a visiting instructor at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry where he teaches a course in environmental risk assessment.
