Dr. Way began his professional career as an Assistant Professor of Biology and Instructor of Computer Science at Alderson-Broaddus College in 1983. In 1986, Dr. Way moved Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.


Dr. Way worked as an Aquatic Ecologist at the Waterways Experiment Station of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from 1988 to 1990. Dr. Way worked primarily on the ecology of benthic organisms in large riverine ecosystems, the effects of commercial navigation traffic on riverine

invertebrates, and threatened/endangered species monitoring and recovery plans. In 1990, Dr. Way became a Senior Scientist and Leader of the Aquatic Simulation Team at the Waterways Experiment Station. Dr. Way was responsible for studies in hydraulic stream ecology, instream flow management, dynamic simulation modeling of threatened/endangered species for the evaluation of management plans, stream habitat restoration, and the development of techniques for determining the microhabitat hydrologic requirements of small stream organisms.


Dr. Way joined Barry A. Vittor & Associates, Inc. in 1994 as a Senior Program Manager and Senior Scientist. He was responsible for projects dealing with stream rapid bioassessment, coastal, nearshore and offshore biological monitoring studies, offshore dredged material disposal site (ODMDS) monitoring studies, pipeline monitoring studies, threatened/endangered species surveys, flood control projects, sewage treatment discharge monitoring studies, and habitat restoration studies. Dr. Way became Vice President in 2004 and is Project Manager/Senior Scientist for a variety of Federal, State and private environmental services contracts.
