Hannah received her BFA at Parsons School for Design, NYC, and her MDes at York University, Toronto. Her research has been presented internationally, including AIGA, CAA, Cumulus, E&PDE, RASC, SXSW, and TEDx. One of her ongoing research projects, ‘Project Lemonaid: Mobile Outreach Hub for Mental Wellness,’ was selected as a finalist at the ‘Learn by Design’ competition, 2019 SXSW EDU. Her current research focuses on 1. UIUX design for EHR and healthcare monitoring systems, 2. Service design for promoting mental wellness and preventing mental illness, and 3. Effectiveness of Design thinking education for the design and non-design major students.
