Professor of Engineering Dynamics and Vibrations at Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge

Deputy Director, Centre for Climate Repair at University of Cambridge

Professor Hugh Hunt is Deputy Director of the Centre for Climate Repair. He is Professor of Dynamics and Vibrations in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge. He has been a lecturer here since 1989, shortly after obtaining his PhD in Engineering from Cambridge. He is also a College Lecturer and Director of Studies in Engineering at Trinity College.

His principal research interest is in albedo enhancement for climate intervention - "how can we refreeze the Arctic?" Within the Centre for Climate Repair he is most interested in the engineering aspects of Marine Cloud Brightening (MCB) and Stratospheric Aerosol Injection (SAI). Other interests include railway noise and vibration, gyroscopes and boomerangs, wave power, renewable energy, tower clocks and the vibration of bell towers.
