Who Are We?

Hannah Critchlow

Hannah is a neuroscientist with a background in neuropsychiatry. During her PhD she was awarded a Fellowship at Magdalene College, University of Cambridge and as an undergraduate received three University Prizes as Best Biologist.

After completing her studies Hannah worked with the neuroscience community, in communication and policy fields - as Strategic Manager for Cambridge Neuroscience and on secondment helping to steer and coordinate the re-launch of the British Neuroscience Association.

Hannah is now stripping down the brain with the Naked Scientists. Using Radio, on-line channels and public focused live events she designs, produces and presents a neuroscience focused, interactive multimedia experience targeted at 14 yrs and upwards.

In 2013 Hannah was named as one of Cambridge Universities "inspirational and successful women in science" and nominated by the British Neuroscience Association for the Science Council top 100 UK scientists award.

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. She really can't dance.
