Hannah Rowland is a lecturer in Ecology and Evolution at the University of Cambridge, and Research fellow at the Institute of Zoology. She is a fellow of Churchill College. Hannah's research focuses on the evolutionary ecology of insect prey defences and avian predators' sensory behaviour and learning. Hannah's research explores how birds recognise, perceive and respond to bitter tastes.

She has a first class BSc honours degree in Zoology from the University of Liverpool, and a PhD in the visual and behavioural ecology of prey defences for which she was awarded two national prizes (the Zoological Society of London’s Thomas Henry Huxley Award, and the Royal Entomological Society’s Alfred Russel Wallace Award).
