Dr Hanna Sykulska-Lawrence is a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow and a Lecturer in the Astronautics Group at the University of Southampton.

Hanna studied Engineering Science at the University of Oxford and completed her PhD in Electrical Engineering at Imperial College in 2009. She returned to Oxford to join the Planetary Group in the Physics Department as a Post Doc and then became a research fellow. She joined Southamtpon in 2017.

Research interests

Hanna's research interests involve the miniaturization of scientific instrumentation for the in-situ study of planets. With a focus on instrument and new technology development, she is currently leading a number of projects, the primary one being the development of a miniature wideband radiometer for the in-situ study of planetary atmospheres. Previously, she has worked on miniaturizing a variety of sensors for planetary exploration, including a wind sensor for Mars, a MEMS microseismometer and micromachined bolometer detector arrays for a thermal mapping spectrometer for a lunar mission. In particular, she was involved in designing, fabricating, delivering and operating two microscopes on NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander 2007.
