Pope was recognized by the Combustion Institute for "seminal advances in the computational modeling of turbulent combustion, including probability density function methods and in situ adaptive tabulation."
Pope received his undergraduate and graduate education in the Mechanical Engineering Department of Imperial College, London. Following post-doctoral positions at Imperial College and in Applied Mathematics at the California Institute of Technology, he joined the Mechanical Engineering faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and then moved to Cornell in 1982.
