Hannah’s current work involves workforce research with the aim of improving shift patterns for nurses. This study has a focus on workforce wellbeing, choice and behaviour change. The research will use qualitative data to determine attributes for a discrete choice experiment (DCE), and then quantitative DCE survey data. Hannah has experience designing and performing research using quantitative and/or qualitative methods in the School of Health Sciences and the School of Geography at the University of Southampton. Her research findings have been published in international journals and presented at conferences. She has recently joined the Health Work & Systems Research Group in Health Sciences, which offers her a unique opportunity to further develop her research skills as this group has novel expertise in extracting, linking and analysing routinely collected quantitative data.

In 2020 Hannah secured a funded (SCDTP) full-time PhD at the School of Geography. Her research focused on optimising food behaviours at the household level for health outcomes, food security and the environment. This research supported her previous work in Health Sciences by building on themes of Health and Wellbeing and developing her knowledge of Behaviour Change Theory and Motivational Theory. Her research in Health Sciences has consistently provided a contribution to support the Nursing Workforce and Wellbeing. This contribution has arisen through evaluating toolkits for the nursing workforce to support effective communication skills and compassionate care cultures, and through expanding knowledge on how the nursing workforce implements safe staffing policies.

Hannah realised her passion for research during her Public Health MSc and has been working in research ever since. She read her MSc with the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton in 2014. She was awarded a distinction and published a paper with the MRC LEU in relation to her MSc dissertation. Prior to this Hannah worked as a registered adult nurse in the NHS across acute medical, surgical and neuro intensive care units after qualifying with a first-class degree in 2011 at the University of Southampton.
