Hannah is a Research Fellow with the interdisciplinary Institute for Water Futures, based at the Australian National University.
Her research to date has investigated inter-generational engagement with the environment, such as how young people engage with a changing climate through political action. Specifically, Hannah’s latest project investigated how and why teenagers end up forming events such as #climatestrike, and what happens when politicians tell them to “go back to school”…
As the Institute for Water Futures Research Fellow, Hannah brings all these pathways together, continuing to work with young people on how their experiences of the environment cross over with an ever-evolving relationship with technology. She is based at the newly established School of Cybernetics at the ANU.
Hannah comes to the role with a mixed background from honours in astrophysics at Curtin University, through to a Masters of Science Communication at the ANU. Hannah as also spent many years of travelling Australia, running technology and design programs with high schools and teachers, before completing a PhD in Science Communication also at the ANU.
