Hannah is currently Associate Curator at the ODI, co-directing the Data as Culture art programme

Hannah joined the ODI team in 2014. As a contemporary art curator she specialises in emerging and trans-disciplinary practices which raise social, cultural and ethical questions within the fields of art, data, science and technology.

With a special interest in collaboration, participation and new technologies, Hannah works with artists and a range of collaborators to develop audience-focused projects for museums, galleries, academic organisations, corporate contexts, digital space and the public realm. Key curatorial projects have addressed cosmology,  climate science, biomedical science, the ways we use data to sense, measure and predict the world, energy, photography, addiction and recovery and the psychological impact of organ donation.

Before setting up as an independent curator and member of the ODI team Hannah worked at the Science Museum Group for 17 years, primarily as Head of Science Museum Arts Programme. Prior to that she co-founded and co-directed an early London digital media start-up company. She regularly speaks and writes on multidisciplinary art and curating practices, and enjoys teaching and lecturing to art, photography and curating students.

Hannah originally trained in Fine Art at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts and Norwich School of Art and in Curating Contemporary Art at the Royal College of Art.
