Philip K. Hopke
Clarkson University

Dr. Philip Hopke is the Bayard D. Clarkson Distinguished Professor at Clarkson University and the Director of the Center for Air Resources Engineering and Science.  Professor Hopke received his B.S. in Chemistry from Trinity College (Hartford) and his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry from Princeton University. After a post-doctoral appointment at M.I.T., he spent four years as an assistant professor at the State University College at Fredonia, NY. Dr. Hopke joined the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, rising to the rank of professor of environmental chemistry, and subsequently came to Clarkson in 1989 as the first Robert A. Plane Professor with a principal appointment in the Department of Chemistry. He moved his appointment to the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in 2000 and accepted his current appointments in 2002.  His research interests are characterization of the ambient aerosol including development of sampling, analysis, and data analysis tools.

State Department Profile
Dr. Phillip Hopke worked in the Bureau of Intelligence and Research focusing his work on climate change and the potential for rapid progress on global warming through controls of black carbon particle, methane, and ozone-precursor emissions. Dr. Hopke assisted in carrying out the Improved Cook Stove Initiative, which was a cooperative effort to examine the needs and potential technologies for improved cook stoves in developing countries, which could dramatically impact air quality and public health in those countries while also helping to restore the global climate. Part of this project included educational seminars for the State Department, other U.S. government agencies, and non-government agencies on the issue. A major milestone in the Cook Stove Initiative was the ASEAN – US Next-Generation Cook Stove Workshop in Bangkok in November 2009.
