ASCE Plot Points Podcast

Mar 27 2023 • 11 mins

Dimitrios Athanasiou, Ph.D., E.I.T., A.M.ASCE, is a senior associate of environmental and earth sciences at Exponent in Bellevue, Washington; he has a Ph.D. from Texas Tech in civil engineering; and he’s the co-chair of the ASCE EWRI Seattle Chapter.

But he began his education with a bachelor’s degree back home in Greece in physics.

So he has an interesting perspective on any comparison between the theoretical and the applied.

In episode 140 of ASCE Plot Points, Athanasiou talks with guest hosts Brianne Duncan and Wendy Cohen of the ASCE EWRI Environmental Health and Water Quality Committee.
