Hannah was awarded her Bachelor of Psychology (Honours – First Class) from Flinders University in 2016. Her Honours project tested the accuracy of a smartphone application for estimating sleep onset called Sleep On Cue, the results of which have been recently published in a top sleep journal. Drawing upon her Honours project, Hannah collaborated with her PhD Supervisors, Emeritus Prof Leon Lack and Dr Nicole Lovato, and Re-Time Pty Ltd to develop a new sleep wearable device called THIM (patent pending).
Hannah has recently completed her PhD (2017-2020). Her PhD research involved developing and testing the accuracy of THIM for measuring sleep, particularly sleep onset. She is currently testing the effectiveness of THIM for administering a novel behavioural treatment for insomnia called Intensive Sleep Retraining. The project aim is to develop a device that people can use in their homes to accurately measure their sleep and treat their insomnia.
