Hannah graduated with a first class MSci in physics from Imperial College London in 2014. She spent a year at ESPCI in Paris as part of her degree. Hannah completed her PhD in July 2018 working in the Centre fo Cold Matter, part of the Quantum Optics and Laser Science group at Imperial College. Hannah's thesis was on the production, trapping and control of ultracold molecules. In 2017 Hannah was awarded the Stevenson Fund from Imperial College and spent two months working in the group of Professor Zelevinsky at Columbia University. In 2017 Hannah took part in the 3 minute thesis competition, hear the talk here.

She is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the same group, working on further experiments with ultracold molecules.
