Co-Head of Security and Extremism
Hannah is Co-Head of our Security and Extremism Unit alongside Martyn Frampton. Hannah was previously a Senior Research Fellow at The Henry Jackson Society and has written reports on extremism, terrorism and jihadist ideology as well as religious law and the role of religion in the public sphere. Her most recent research project analysed all Islamism-inspired terrorism convictions and attacks in the UK since 1999 and used the data to provide statistical and thematic connections within radicalisation and terrorism in the UK today. Hannah has advised government officials, MPs and other relevant stakeholders and her research and ideas have informed counter-radicalisation policy. Hannah has extensive broadcast media experience and has written analysis for the Wall Street Journal, The Times, Foreign Policy, Current Trends in Islamist Ideology and the Guardian, among others. Hannah was previously a Research Fellow at the Centre for Social Cohesion think tank in London. She has a MA in International Studies and Diplomacy (with Distinction) from the School of Oriental and African Studies, and a BA in English Literature from the University of Bristol.
