Rachel DelVecchio (she/her) has over 20 years of experience in the assessment of chemical and physical impacts to ecological systems. Her work focuses on the science behind natural resource damage assessments and mitigation, application of technical information to support environmental policy and regulation, and generation of sound evidence in support of negotiations and environmental litigation. She has extensive experience evaluating the ecological services provided by natural systems, determining the impact of physical or chemical disturbances on those services, and scaling the benefits provided by restoration alternatives. Rachel has worked on dozens of damage assessments that encompass a wide range of site-specific issues and stakeholder concerns, and provided expert technical support for remedial processes and alternative evaluations.
She holds a B.A. in Earth and Environmental Science from Wesleyan University in Connecticut, and a joint Masters of Engineering in Ocean Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
