Hannah is interested in children's bullying involvement, with a focus on children in foster care, and sibling bullying.

Hannah is a Teaching Fellow in Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London. Hannah completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology at Keele University, followed by an MSc in Psychological Research Methods at the University of Sheffield.

Hannah’s PhD (Goldsmiths, University of London) explored the role of the family on adolescent’s bullying involvement using a mixed-method design. In particular, she is interested in how different family demographics (family structure and siblings) may contribute to the risk of bullying involvement in adolescence. Within this, Hannah is interested in between-sibling bullying, and the experiences of children living in social care.
