Short presentation

Since the early 1990s, Hannah's research has looked at identity and inequalities around ethnicity, migration status and gender, with a particular focus on health. This work has been widely published in book and article form.

Having published her doctoral research as a novella, she maintains an interest in fiction as a form of evidence and as a research method for understanding health and illness in social context.
