Hannah has a background in biomedical science and has been an occupational therapist since completing her master's degree in 2004. Her major clinical and research interest concerns improving cognitive, psychosocial and physical functioning of people with chronic neurological conditions. She has previously conducted research in stroke and traumatic brain injury across the continuum of care from acute, through rehabilitation and home to community.

Hannah held a NHMRC scholarship during her PhD, which tested a theoretical model in multiple sclerosis exploring associations between key disease and psychosocial factors, and functional outcomes to guide rehabilitation. She has developed novel interventions for symptom self-management, including the use of smart technology, to improve independence in daily living. Hannah is focussed on further enhancing community participation for people following brain injury through delivery of tailored interventions via telehealth.
