Hannah is junior researcher in port economics at Erasmus UPT. Her main focus and interest is on hinterland connectivity and optimization of seaport trading networks. Currently, Hannah is working together with Maurice Jansen on PLANET, a European project aiming for smart, green and integrated transport and logistics promotion by efficiently connecting infrastructure (TEN-T, rail freight corridors) with geopolitical developments. Hannah also supports in conducting research and organizing education. She was teaching assistant for the Masters Seminar 'Ports and Global Logistics' and Minor 'Port Management and Maritime Logistics'.
In 2021, Hannah organized the conference for the International Association of Maritime Economists in Rotterdam together with Maurice Jansen, Larissa van der Lugt and other researchers from TU Delft. For almost a year, she focused on all organizational aspects of organizing an international conference, in corona time. A report of IAME2021 can be read here.
She is following a double degree study, the Mr.Drs.-program, whereby she obtains a bachelor's and master's degree for both Economics and Law. Hannah graduated in February 2022 from the Master's in Urban, Port and Transport Economics, where her thesis focused on the impact of the port merger between Antwerp and Zeebrugge on hinterland connectivity. She is currently finishing her Law bachelor, to start in September with the Master Maritime and Transport Law. This will provide her with both economic and legal knowledge in the field of ports and transport.
