About me

Hannah is a PhD student in the Centre for Transport and Society. She is a recipient of a studentship from the Faculty of Environment and Technology. Hannah's PhD project aims to provide an insight into the interactions between cyclists and pedestrians in shared spaces of mobility.

Before starting her PhD, Hannah worked as a research assistant for Sustrans' Research and Monitoring Unit in Newcastle. This involved designing and carrying out research (focus groups, interviews, quantitative surveys) and analysing large datasets for a UK wide project with over 60 individual project areas. She was also involved in developing reports and providing material for funding bids.

Previous to this, Hannah was awarded a distinction for an MSc in 'Cities Culture and Social Change' at Kings College London. Her MSc dissertation examined the real and perceived risk factors associated with mandatory cycle lanes in London. Hannah’s research was awarded a bursary from the cycling charity CTC.

Hannah was recently awarded the ‘Transport Geography Research Group Postgraduate Prize’ for the paper she presented on her current PhD research at the Royal Geographical Society Conference in 2014.
