Philip K. Hopke, the Bayard D. Clarkson Distinguished Professor and director of the Center for Air Resources Engineering & Science (CARES) at Clarkson University, has been elected a 2007 American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Fellow.
This honor is awarded to AAAS members who have made significant efforts to advance science or its applications. Hopke was specifically honored for leadership in fundamental research and education related to the sources and fate of atmospheric pollutants and their integration in federal air quality policies.
Election as a fellow of AAAS is an honor bestowed upon members by their peers. Hopke was recognized at the Fellows Forum in February during the AAAS annual meeting last month in Boston.
Last October, Hopke was appointed to the EPA's Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee Particulate Matter Panel. He recently served on the National Academy of Engineering's Committee on Energy Futures and Urban Air Pollution in China and the United States. He has also served on the EPA's Science Advisory Board and was a member of the National Research Council's (NRC) congressionally mandated Committee on Research Priorities for Airborne Particulate Matter and the Committee on Air Quality Management in the United States. He has also served on five other NRC committees.
In 2005, Hopke was appointed by the National Academy of Engineering to conduct a study in collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Science to assess the urban impact of the dual problems of continued coal consumption and the rapid increase of private vehicles in China. He is a recipient of the David Sinclair Award from the American Association for Aerosol Research and has served as the association's president. Hopke is also an International Aerosol Fellow.
Last fall, Hopke was named an American Association for the Advancement of Science fellow and received the Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS) Award for Outstanding Achievements in Chemometrics.
Hopke earned a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from Trinity College and both an M.A. and Ph.D. in chemistry from Princeton University. He joined Clarkson University as the Robert A. Plane Professor of Chemistry in July 1989.
