Biography

Hannah graduated from Durham University in 2008 with a BSc in Chemistry, and remained in Durham to study for an MSc by research in physical chemistry, finishing in 2009.

During her PhD in the School of Chemistry at the University of Leeds she studied reactive tropospheric species using laser-based spectroscopy techniques from aircraft, ship, and ground-based measurement platforms.

Following her PhD Hannah stayed in the School of Chemistry and joined the ORC3 project (Oceanic Reactive Carbon: Chemistry-Climate Impacts) led by Dr Steve Arnold, developing and deploying a laser-induced phosphorescence (LIP) instrument for detection of glyoxal at ambient concentrations during two fieldwork campaigns in Cape Verde.

Hannah joined the School of Earth and Environment in 2015 and continues to work on the ORC3 project, studying the impacts of oceanic reactive carbon using the global aerosol microphysics model GLOMAP.
