Roy R. Stoecker Ph.D
Senior Vice President and Founder of EEA


Roy Stoecker is one of the three co-founder’s of Energy and Environmental Analysts, and has been Vice President since its establishment in 1979.  He formed and organized the Ecological Services Division of EEA.  Dr. Stoecker serves as the Principal-In-Charge of all ecological, water quality and marine environmental studies.  Prior to EEA, Dr. Stoecker was the Ecology Division Director of the Environmental Division of a national environmental and occupational health-consulting firm owned by the Equitable Life Assurance Society insurance company.

Many of Dr. Stoecker's project activities involve design of large-scale scientific/environmental programs.  He is currently Principal-in-Charge of the Army Corps of Engineers South Shore of Long Island Storm Damage Mitigation Program.  Both the Fire Island Interim Plan (FIIP) EIS and the Storm Damage Reduction Reformulation Study focus on natural resource assessments for storm damage protection.   As such, he is directly responsible for all of the natural resource studies presently underway.  These include offshore and backbay fisheries programs, benthic invertebrates, submerged aquatic vegetation, bottom profiling, and many other programs.

 Dr. Stoecker just recently began consulting for a proposed offshore wind energy project planned by Long Island Power Authority (LIPA).  Through a team effort with other consultants, Dr. Stoecker was involved in a preliminary study of the entire south shore to locate possible sites for an offshore wind farm. Dr. Stoecker contributed to a study that describes the natural resources on the south shore of Long Island and addresses sensitive issues involved in the building of an offshore wind farm.  Dr. Stoecker also spearheaded the Jamaica Bay Eutrophication Study, a marine aquatic sampling program designed to contribute data to a nutrient modeling program for the Jamaica Bay Estuary.  Another one of his programs involves the design and bio-engineering of created wetlands at the Fresh Kills Landfill.  This innovative project utilizes dredged materials as the wetlands underlayment thereby providing a beneficial end use for these materials.

In the past, Dr. Stoecker has been the principal-in-charge of numerous ecological siting feasibility studies.  He designed and directed multi-year ecological studies of the Hudson River Center site adjacent to the Javits Convention Center and the East River Landing site adjacent to the South Street Seaport in Manhattan.  Dr. Stoecker crafted an environmental study on the Great South Bay and associated barrier beaches, which included studies of avifauna, groundwater, and intertidal marsh vegetation in order to determine the potential impacts of residential development along the barrier beaches.

Dr. Stoecker is active in many environmental affairs relating to the Great South Bay and Barrier Islands.  He has served on the following committees:

»Chairman, Town of Babylon Environmental Conservation Commission
»Chairman, Town of Babylon Beach Advisory Committee
»Save the Beaches Fund, Inc.
»Ad Hoc Committee for the Outer Beaches
»Technical Committee, South Shore Estuary Reserve Council

Dr. Stoecker  received his Ph.D. in Botany from  University of Hawaii.  He is extensively published and author of   “Aquatic Studies at the Hudson River Center Site In: Estuarine Research in the 1980's:  The Hudson River Environmental Society Seventh Symposium on Hudson River Ecology ((1992).

Dr. Stoecker is also a writer of fiction novels and an accomplished woodworker, adding character to Garden City's office furniture.
