Dr Hannah Christensen

Biography

Hannah is an epidemiologist with particular interests in infectious diseases, vaccines, modelling and health economics.  After completing my BSc (Hons) in Biology at the University of Nottingham in 2003 she spent three years working as an analyst for the Health Protection Agency South West Regional Epidemiology Unit and the South West Public Health Observatory.


In 2007 Hannah joined the Department of Social Medicine (now Population Health Sciences at the Bristol Medical School) as a PhD Fellow funded by an NIHR Researcher Development Award.  Her thesis used infectious disease and economic models to predict the potential impact of introducing a new meningococcal vaccine into the UK schedule.  Following this, she worked for 2 years on the TARGET study, an NIHR-funded Programme Grant aiming to improve the quality of care given to children presenting to primary care with respiratory tract infections (RTIs).  Since then Hannah has held an NIHR post-doctoral fellowship investigating the impact (epidemiological and economic) of meningococcal vaccination schedules, particularly in adolescents and she now holds an NIHR Career Development Fellowship investigating how better to assess the impact and offer effective vaccination in older adults. 


Hannah is a member of the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Behavioural Science and Evaluation at the University of Bristol.
