Hannah is a PhD graduate in Cultural Anthropology at Victoria University of Wellington. She  researched surrogacy in a New Zealand context, exploring the ways that intended parents and surrogates rebel against or conform to strict reproductive regulations.

She has recently been a visiting scholar at Cambridge University with Reprosoc. Her key interests are in medical and reproductive anthropology, surrogacy, anthropology of law vis a vis kinship studies
