Areas of expertise


Dr Le Corre Pidou completed her PhD on the understanding of struvite crystallisation at Cranfield University. She then worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Water Recycling at Cranfield University. She was in charge of co-ordinating the Centre’s research on water reclamation and reuse and in particular lead the contribution to the RECLAIM WATER EC funded research project on wastewater reclamation for aquifer recharge which included research activities in a set of international water reclamation and recharge case study sites. She also worked for the Gironde Council, Bordeaux, France, as Project Coordinator of the EU project Water and Territories (SUDOE – INTERREG IVB) aiming at opening new perspectives for water governance by promoting the cooperation between stakeholders involved in all sectors influenced by water usage. In 2010, she took on the position of Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Advanced Water Management Centre at the University of Queensland (Australia), where she led a research project on Hospital Wastewater. This project performed in the context of the Western Corridor recycling scheme looked at the contribution of hospitals to the load of pharmaceuticals in municipal wastewater. 

Dr Le Corre Pidou returned to Cranfield University in 2014 as a Research Fellow in Water Reuse. She worked on the collaborative project DEMOWARE “Innovation Demonstration for a competitive and Innovative European Water Reuse sector” supported by the European Commission under its Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7). She more specifically contributed to the "Exploitation and Growth" part of the project which led to the creation of Water Reuse Europe, the industry-association for water reuse in Europe.

Current activities

Kristell Le Corre Pidou’s current activities focus on Resource Recovery. She is involved in research projects on phosphorus removal using reactive media based constructed wetlands, the impact of rainwater harvesting in India on groundwater quality with specific reference to fluoride and micropollutants, water reuse for golf course irrigation. She is also involved in the UK Collaboratorium for Research and Infrastructure (UKCRIC) and is the secretary of Water Reuse Europe.
