Hannah is a Postdoctoral researcher in the Sustainable Resource Management and Global Change research group and part of the Policy Evaluation Lab.

With her empirical research, she aims to answer questions of policy design at the intersections of environmental, health, and labor economics. To this end, she leverages econometric methods for causal inference, large and high-frequency micro-level datasets, and machine learning algorithms.

Hannah conducted her doctoral research at MCC and the Technical University of Berlin. She completed her Masters degree in Economics at the Humboldt University of Berlin.
