After completing a PhD at the University of Cambridge, Hannah worked as a research fellow and lecturer at the British School at Rome, Magdalene College Cambridge, the Freie Universität, and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Emotions in Berlin.
Her research uses architecture as a window onto the nature of memory and politics.
