BioWilliam F. Hunt is the former director of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Emissions, Monitoring and Analysis Division. The division consists of about 110 scientists, engineers and statisticians. He retired from his post two years ago and is presently Visiting Professor and Senior Scientist in the Department of Statistics at North Carolina State University. His main objective there is to strengthen and broaden the environmental programs and services of this university. Among numerous special assignments, Mr. Hunt advised the U.S. government in dealing with the air pollution problems resulting from the Kuwait oil fires in the Iraq war of 1991, and he served as the co-project leader of the U.S./Russia Working Group on Statistical Analysis Methodology on the Air Quality Trend Assessment. He has received several awards from governmental and private institutions for his work in air pollution matters.
