Hannah graduated with a BSc Hons in Environmental Science in 2018 from University College Cork (UCC), followed by a one-year MSc (Res) in Environmental Science at UCC on an EPA-funded project supervised by Dr Tim Sullivan.
Currently Hannah is undertaking a PhD entitled ‘The impact of organic matter on heavy metal bioavailability in urban soils: experimental and field-based approaches’, which is funded by iCRAG and supervised by Dr Maria McNamara and Dr Tim Sullivan in the School of BEES at UCC.
Hannah is interested in tackling pollution and contamination problems that are caused by human impacts on the environment. She has conducted research on diverse environmental aspects, including freshwater monitoring and wastewater assessment using fields and sensor data, and sea surface temperature assessment using satellite data. She is now specialising her research into the area of geohazards by mapping urban soils across southern Ireland using a field- and lab-based approach.
