Research and Professional Experience
C. Arden Pope, III is currently the Mary Lou Fulton Professor of Economics.  He received his Ph.D. from Iowa State University (Economics/Statistics, 1981) and was a Fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health (Environmental Health and Public Policy, 1992/93).  He has conducted research dealing with various natural resource and environmental issues and his cross-disciplinary research in environmental economics and air pollution epidemiology has resulted in seminal studies on the health effects of air pollution.  Dr. Pope has collaborated on various key studies of human health effects of short- and long-term air pollution exposure and has played prominent roles in reviewing and interpreting this literature.  He has been the recipient of various honors and awards including the Thomas T. Mercer Joint Prize from the American Association for Aerosol Research and the International Society for Aerosols in Medicine (2001), the Utah Governor’s Medal for Science & Technology (2004), and Honorary Fellow of the American College of Chest Physicians (FCCP Hon, 2008).
