She undertook an assessment of clutch size among egg-bearing lobsters, and was awarded a distinction for her development with us. Her project spawned a successful dissertation and contributed to a published paper. After graduating, Hannah was employed by One Scientific Ltd, an environmental testing laboratory, where she has progressed from the positions of Laboratory Technician and Senior Laboratory Analyst to become a Senior Laboratory Coordinator. Hannah is currently working at Weston SeaQuarium as a Senior Aquarist.
