QUESTS is extremely pleased to welcome Dr Hannah Delaney to the team. Hannah has just started work as the Post-Doctoral Researcher with the HRB-TMRN on a pilot trial which will develop and test an education and training intervention for recruiters to randomised trials within maternity care. This is a joint post between Trinity College Dublin (led by Prof Valerie Smith) and NUI Galway (Prof Declan Devane and QUESTS). QUESTS are collaborators on this study and look forward to working with Dr Delaney and the HRB-TMRN team.
Prior to taking up this role, Hannah was a Senior Researcher at the Scottish Centre for Social Research, in Edinburgh, leading on multiple mixed-method studies relating to health policy.
Hannah is from Galway and completed her BA at NUI Galway in 2008. She qualified from King’s College London with an MSc in ‘Cities Culture and Social Change’ in 2010, where she developed an interest in health behaviours and active travel. Hannah obtained her PhD from the Centre for Transport and Society at the University of the West of England in 2016. Her PhD research explored ‘Walking and Cycling Interactions on Shared-Use Paths,’ through in-depth interviews, video ethnographies and on-site surveys.
