Hannah’s work involves the strategic, scientific and technical development of regional and global marine projects, particularly focussed upon Marine Protected Areas, marine spatial planning, marine assessment and indicators and policy support. She is very interested in multidisciplinary approaches to systematic conservation planning, the process of stakeholder engagement and consensus-building, trade-offs between conservation and resource use, and the role of decision support tools in delivering effective marine planning.
Prior to working at UNEP-WCMC, Hannah worked closely with a wide range of marine users to identify the Marine Conservation Zones. She has an MSc in Conservation Biology from the University of Cape Town and ten years of terrestrial conservation experience, having managed protected areas in Republic of Congo and undertaken field assessments across Madagascar.
