Hannah’s interests are in urban development and risk in the built environment. Her doctorate at the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering focused on demolition and adaptation of existing buildings on urban development projects, including case studies in the UK, The Netherlands and Australia. Hannah previously completed her undergraduate degree in Architecture at the University of Cambridge and Masters in Town and Country Planning at the University of the West of England, Bristol.

Hannah joined CAR in 2012 and became a Director in 2018. She has worked on a range of projects, mainly in the Risk team including: The Earthquake Engineering Photographic Investigation Map (EEPIMap); Network of European Research Infrastructures for Earthquake Risk Assessment and Mitigation; and the Cambridge Earthquake Impact Database.

During her PhD, Hannah has undertaken two academic secondments: one at TU Delft, in the Netherlands and the other at University of Technology Sydney, in Australia. She also sat on the advisory panel for a Demolition and Adaptation Database (DaAD) developed at Clemson University, USA.

Hannah has presented at a range of international conferences including: The World Sustainability and Built Environment Conference, Hong Kong; Annual European Real Estate Society Conference, TU Delft, Netherlands; and the Zero Energy Mass Custom House (ZEMCH) Conference, Melbourne, Australia.

In 2016, Hannah was awarded the Doctoral Prize Fellowship in Future Cities, sponsored by Capital and Counties Ltd and the University’s Department of Land Economy and in 2017 was awarded the First Prize Doctoral Research Award by the Association of British Turkish Academics. Following the completion of her PhD, Hannah will undertake research in the Engineering Department funded by the EPSRC Doctoral Prize.

Hannah works on projects at CAR related to demolition and adaptation, urban development, and risk and resilience.
