Hannah completed her undergraduate degree in Microbiology at the University of Liverpool in 2020. During her degree, she completed a summer placement funded by The Wellcome Trust to characterise phenotypes of invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella. Hannah is currently undertaking a PhD in Medical Microbiology, exploring the advances in next-generation sequencing to detect gastroenteric pathogens directly from stool. She is interested in applying her research to hospital settings to positively impact diagnostics in public health. Alongside her PhD, Hannah has been an active member of AMI as the Science Communication Officer for the Early Career Scientist (ECS) committee. She has played an integral role in organising ECS virtual and in-person conferences, producing content for The Microbiologist and interviewing key members of the Microbiology community, such as Prof Dame Sally Davies and Prof Sir Jonathan Van Tam.
