The ASTM International Professor of the Year Award recognizes and rewards the contributions of educators in developing students’ understanding of the organization’s 13,000 technical standards which are used in dozens of industries.
"I am humbled to receive this prestigious biannual award from ASTM International,” said Lampousis. “It affords additional, national, credibility to our environmental site assessments training program through CCNY, and it will definitely benefit our graduating students seeking employment as environmental professionals."
A lecturer in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Lampousis has collaborated with staff from New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority to develop teaching modules based on standards, an effort that was recently recognized by a grant from the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology.
He received a bachelor’s degree from the department of agriculture’s school of geotechnical sciences at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. He went on to earn his master’s degree in earth and environmental sciences and doctoral degree in environmental geophysics from The Graduate Center, CUNY.
