Her research focuses on food poverty, the rise of emergency food provision and the right to food. Hannah has previously worked at the universities of Warwick and Coventry and has undertaken a range of research projects on issues of hunger and food aid supported by funders including the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). Most recently, Hannah was involved in the Defra funded review of food aid and has given both written and oral evidence to the Parliamentary Inquiry into hunger and food poverty in Britain. Hannah is a member of Child Poverty Action Group’s (CPAG) policy committee and in June 2014 she was awarded first prize for Outstanding Early Career Impact at the ESRC’s Celebrating Impact awards.
Hannah will bring her enthusiasm and expertise to the SPERI team and we are very much looking forward to welcoming her. You will hear about her forthcoming projects and commitments very soon.
