Claire F Hunt, BSc, MSc

Claire is Option Convenor for Integrated Water Management on the Centre for Environmental Policy's MSc in Environmental Technology.

Research interests

Claire's recent research interests have focused on pollution of the marine environment, including the impacts of microplastics and the effectiveness of voluntary remediation measures.

Other interests include the environmental concerns of the water companies: taste and odour in drinking water, micropollutants and wastewater treatment, the revised bathing waters directive and the development of the Water Footprint concepts to incorporate environmental stress.

Recent work for DEFRA has investigated knowledge gaps regarding the impact of urban diffuse water pollution, and how to develop integrated urban interventions so that they yield multiple benefits such as pollution reduction, flooding control and improved health outcomes.
