Hannah is currently Associate Curator at the ODI, co-directing the Data as Culture art programme

Hannah joined the ODI team in 2014. As a contemporary art curator she specialises in emerging and multidisciplinary practice which raises social, cultural and ethical questions within the fields of art, data, science and technology.

She has a special interest in collaboration, participation and media art. She develops audience-focused projects for museums, galleries, academic organisations and societies, corporate contexts, digital space and the public realm. Her curatorial projects have touched on a broad range of subjects including: biomedical science, energy, climate science, photography, addiction and recovery, the psychological impact of organ donation, cosmology, the ways we sense, measure and predict the world, and digital technologies.

Before setting up as an independent curator and member of the ODI team Hannah worked at the Science Museum Group for 17 years, primarily as Head of Science Museum Arts Programme. She regularly speaks and writes on multidisciplinary art and curating practices, and enjoys teaching and lecturing to art, photography and curating students.

Hannah originally trained in Fine Art: Painting at Norwich School of Art and holds an MA in Curating Contemporary Art from the Royal College of Art.
