Dr Hannah Critchlow
Neuroscience public engagement
Hannah strips down the brain. Using Radio, TV and Festival platforms she designs, produces and presents brainy interactive experiences for the public. She has featured on BBC, Sky and ITV channels and presented live events to over 30, 000 people across the globe,
In 2014 Hannah was named as a Top 100 UK scientist by the Science Council for her work in science communication. In 2013 she was named as one of Cambridge Universities ‘inspirational and successful women in science’. During her PhD she was awarded a Magdalene College, Cambridge University Fellowship and as an undergraduate received three University Prizes as Best Biologist.
Hannah’s choice of career stemmed from working as a Nursing Assistant at St Andrews Psychiatric Hospital. When not being enthused by all things brainy Hannah spends her time splashing about by the river and living the houseboat dream.
