Hannah first joined Keele University in 2009, as an Undergraduate student in Criminology and Law. Since then, Hannah has also graduated with a Masters in Criminology and Criminal Justice, and is conducting her doctoral research under the supervision of Professor Ronnie Lippens, Dr. Evi Girling, and Dr. Samantha Weston. Hannah has taught on a range of Criminology modules, from the Foundation Year through to Masters level, and was appointed as a Teaching Fellow in Criminology in September 2017.

In addition, Hannah has worked as a Research Associate alongside Dr. Samantha Weston, on projects with Re-Solv – on early intervention and prevention of volatile substance abuse (VSA), and with Staffordshire Police – evaluating the child sexual exploitation (CSE) prevention programme currently being delivered to young people in Staffordshire. 

Hannah’s research interests lie primarily in the area of Criminology and War. In particular, she is interested in the complex implications of 21st century conflict and war on Criminology, the social world, and more specifically, on those employed by the state to deliver violence on their behalf. Broader criminological interests continue to guide Hannah’s research and scholarship, including social exclusion and stigma; identities; transitions and rehabilitation; and a desire to uncover voices and truths from those that have experienced harm as a result of interactions with state institutions.  

Hannah’s current research uses qualitative and visual methodology, drawing theoretical inspiration from the works of Pierre Bourdieu on the social world and the (re)production of power and inequality within society.
