As a geostatistician, Stacy Woods applies her expertise in analytical design, statistical analysis, GIS, and data communication and visualization to support NRDC’s advocacy and litigation. She has served as an expert witness and science advisor on state and federal cases with NRDC’s litigation team, including the landmark Flint water case (Concerned Pastors for Social Action v.

Prior to joining NRDC, Woods worked for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and she was a Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy fellow at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM). She holds a Ph.D. in environmental health sciences and a master's of public health from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, where she was a Brown scholar in community health.
