Hanna is originally from Sweden and completed her MChem degree at the University of St Andrews in 2015, where she developed an interest in the structural aspects of open framework materials. She joined the Goodwin group as a DPhil student the same year, supported by an Oxford Graduate Scholarship. Her work focuses on hybrid perovskites and “unconventional” degrees of freedom made possible by molecular substitutions. The experimental side of the project is about Prussian blue analogues and she loves synthesising colourful cyanides.
Outside of chemistry, she is interested in music and currently plays the bassoon in Oxford University Wind Orchestra. She’s also involved with the charity SchoolsPlus and the University lifesaving club.
