Personal profile

Biography

Hannah is an interdisciplinary researcher interested in the impacts of climate change and variability and how these can be addressed in policy and practice. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher on the STRATA project, developing a global mapping tool to monitor climate and environmental stresses, conflict and socio-economic vulnerability, in collaboration with UNEP and Earth Blox.

Hannah was previously a postdoctoral scientist at the University of Reading, where her research spanned seasonal weather forecasting for East Africa, climate impacts on food security in Namibia, and the impacts of climate change on sweet potato production in Uganda. Prior to this, she completed her PhD at the University of Reading, investigating the role of attributing extreme weather events to climate change in national and international climate policy, focussing particularly on flood risk in Senegal. Hannah also has experience in the private sector, where as sustainability engineer for an agricultural technology company she worked with teams of software engineers and scientists to integrate understanding of sustainable agricultural practices in a decision-making tool.
