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.

Hannah's PhD project is focused on developing and testing the accuracy of THIM for measuring sleep as well as its effectiveness for administering a novel treatment for insomnia called Intensive Sleep Retraining. The aim is to develop a device that people can use in their homes to accurately measure their sleep and treat their insomnia. Hannah is expected to complete her PhD in early-2020.
