Since 2021, she has worked as a Senior Lecturer on the Foundation Year programme and also contributes to teaching in the History department.

Prior to coming to BGU, Hannah earned an undergraduate MA in English and Modern History and a postgraduate MLitt in Modern History, both from the University of St Andrews.
