Hannah was awarded an MChem degree from St Catherine’s College, Oxford before going on to continue her research at graduate level, obtaining a DPhil in 2014. Her doctoral project was a cross-disciplinary investigation into the action of inorganic nanoparticles on the immune system, with a view to their potential uses as vaccine adjuvants. During her time in research, Hannah obtained extensive experience across a number of subjects including inorganic chemistry, nanoparticle synthesis and characterisation, microbiological techniques and immunology, and has also spent time studying chemical reactions in situ at the Diamond Light Source synchrotron.
Hannah joined J A Kemp in 2017 as a part-qualified patent attorney, having previously worked at another large private practice firm.
Hannah’s responsibilities include the filing and prosecution of patent applications in the chemical and pharmaceuticals field, where she has specific experience in small molecule pharmaceuticals, polymers and materials, and food additives.
