Hannah was at Motu for a year (2017-2018) after completing a double majored masters in Finance and Economics at the University of Canterbury. Her undergraduate studies included completion of a Bcom in Finance, a BA in Political Science and Economics, and included a focus on Asian geopolitics and development economics.
At Motu, Hannah worked with Suzi Kerr examining native plantation forestry in the Emission Trading Scheme, outlining policy and private market changes that could encourage more plantations. She also worked within the Deep South Science Challenge helping to coordinate within the Impacts and Implications Program. Her third project was with Arthur Grimes examining the dynamics of the geographic roll-out of fibre broadband in New Zealand.
Outside of work Hannah enjoys reading and exploring nature.
