Hannah is from Oberlin, OH and is on the modern CMES track. She completed her BA in History at Oberlin College with a minor in Politics and International Studies. Before coming to the University of Chicago, she worked as a baker in Boston, MA. Her academic interests are in the social, political, and economic development of modern Turkey. Her research focuses on the ways in which labor participation in state enterprises contributed to the development of a distinctly “Turkish” national identity, particularly in the Black Sea Region. Hannah plays the cello, desperately wants a real garden, and enjoys cooking and baking in her free time. She hopes to work at a think tank or in public service in the future.
