Philip K. Hopke, Clarkson University’s Bayard D. Clarkson distinguished professor, director of the Center for Air Resources Engineering & Science (CARES) and director of Clarkson’s Center for the Environment, has been appointed to the Climate and Atmospheric Sciences Committee of the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (NJDEP) Science Advisory Board.
Hopke, who was named director of Clarkson’s Center for the Environment in December, has served for nearly a decade as director of CARES, which fosters research in air sampling and analysis, receptor modeling, atmospheric deposition, and the application of computational fluid dynamics to air pollution problems.
In December, Hopke was named to the Residential, Commercial and Industrial Technical Advisory Panel for the preparation of a Climate Action Plan for the State of New York. In January, he also became a member of the National Research Council Committee to Develop a Research Strategy for Environmental, Health, and Safety Aspects of Engineered Nanomaterials.
Hopke has served at the U.S. Department of State where he served as a Jefferson Science Fellow, as chair of EPA’s Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee, and as a member of the National Academy of Engineering’s Committee on Energy Futures and Urban Air Pollution in China and the United States, the EPA’s Science Advisory Board, and 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 seven other NRC committees.
