Mr. Kampschroer has lectured at various universities such as MIT, Harvard, Georgia Tech, and Yale. His most recent publication as a contributing author is the first medical study showing the link between building characteristics on office worker stress and heart function-which showed the beneficial results of good lighting, natural light and IEQ. He has worked for GSA for over 39 years and is a graduate of Yale University.
