Dr Hugh Hunt is a Reader in Engineering Dynamics and Vibration at Cambridge University. His research centres on the control of noise and vibration from underground railways, but he is also interested in geoengineering. He was Co-Investigator on the SPICE project, 2010-15, which looked at various aspects of SRM. He was responsible for an outdoor experiment, the 1km testbed, which was intended to evaluate the influence of wind on the motion of a tethered balloon.
He is now also interested in techniques for the removal of non-CO2 greenhouse gases, in particular methane and N2O.
Hugh is a regular presenter on television documentaries on Channel 4, PBS Nova and SBS, including "Dambusters: Building the Bouncing Bomb", "Attack of the Zeppelins", "Escape from Colditz" and "Guy Martin Wall of Death". He is Keeper of the Clock at Trinity College, a clock which is demonstrably the most accurate tower clock in the world. He has an impressive collection of boomerangs which he uses to inspire students in the study of dynamics and mechanics.
