Hannah has worked as a Research Assistant on multiple projects at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (2018-2020) and at the Centre for Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation (2020-2021). Her main research project was evaluating the effectiveness of 'Foodbot Factory', an evidence-based serious game designed using the 2019 Canadian Food Guide as a reference, which aimed to teach children about healthy eating, nutrition and health literacy.
Hannah's Doctoral research focuses on the effectivness of theoretical-based digital nutrition behaviour change interventions on healthy eating behaviours and dietary intakes in low-socioeconomic primary school children. Hannah's research is supervised by Dr. Emma Norris and Dr. Kei Long Cheung. Hannah aims to address the need for theory-based digital interventions, developed with interacting components which result in the greatest effectiveness of dietary outcomes in low-socioeconomic families.
