Heath joins EcoCheck after being an ecological modeler at NOAA's Cooperative Oxford Lab since 2006. His research interests include GIS and spatial analysis, bacterial water quality modeling, and creating model-based tools for the regulation and management community. Heath finished his doctoral research on fecal pollution modeling and bacterial source tracking in 2006, at the University of South Carolina's Arnold School of Public Health. Prior to that he was a Peace Corps volunteer in Papua New Guinea from 1995 - 1998. His move back to the Chesapeake region is a sort of homecoming - Heath received his Bachelor's Degree in biology from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 1988, and grew up in the Washington metro area, sailing and boating in Chesapeake Bay. When he's not being a modeling geek, Heath enjoys being a kid again with his wife Anne and two young children in Cambridge, MD.
