Hannah completed her Plymouth University MSc Applied Marine Science Masters Degree in September 2017, involving physical oceanography, biogeochemistry, biology and ecology. Most recently, Hannah conducted her Masters research project in collaboration with SeaTorbay and the Community Seagrass Initiative, exploring behavioural and social responses to an eco-mooring trial in a sensitive seagrass site in Torbay. This project will publish up to two papers later this year and has gathered much interest from regional management; Hannah is due to present her findings to Natural England and The National Trust to aid other seagrass conservation projects nationally. Passionate for coastal ecology, Hannah has also volunteered externally in roles with Wembury Marine Centre as a rock pool guide, the Shark Trust as a volunteer biological researcher, the Community Seagrass Initiative as a volunteer scientific diver and Plymouth University as a volunteer educational outreach officer. Hannah is now the field assistant for the CoCoast team which is her first professional marine science role after volunteering for the team since October 2016. She will continue the work of the project for its final 12 months, training and managing volunteers in the collection of citizen science data on intertidal species looking at the effects of climate the MarClim dataset through topshell reproductive dissection.
