Research Interests

Hannah’s primary research interests include peace studies, American foreign policy, and the impact of language and tone variations in codified human rights law on practical protections for vulnerable populations. Hannah’s fall 2018 theory paper for Dr. Maryann Gallagher’s Women in World Politics class, establishing arbitrary family separation as a crime against humanity, was chosen for a panel presentation and discussion at the inaugural SPIA Undergraduate Research Colloquium, and prompted her to pursue an internship with the International Rescue Committee’s Intensive Case Management department this past summer.
