Hannah graduated in 2018 from Montana State University with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. As an undergraduate student, Hannah was awarded independent funding through the Montana INBRE program to participate in biomedical research. Hannah worked with Dr. Connie Chang to develop a microfluidic platform and characterize influenza A propagation on the single cell level using droplet microfluidics. After undergrad, Hannah spent time in industry working as a research and development engineer developing sustainable meat alternatives at the biotech startup, Nature's Fynd. Hannah's passion for science and medicine led her back to academia as a researcher in Dr. David Wood's lab at the University of Minnesota and has spent the last year and a half studying sickle cell disease. Hannah is interested in using combined experimental and computational approaches to understanding pathological blood flow in diseases such as sickle cell disease. In her free time, she enjoys cross country skiing and marathon training.
