Sociologist. Maker. Bass player.
Hannah is the Institute for Water Futures Research Fellow at the School of Cybernetics.
She comes to the School with a mixed background that traverses an undergraduate and 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 a heap of tech and design programs with high schools and teachers, in between.
Her PhD research investigated how young people engage with a changing climate through political action. Specifically, Hannah’s latest projects 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.
When it’s not a lockdown or business hours, you can find Hannah on stage with her band, or counting down the days until the next National Folk Festival.
