Our People

Dr Hannah Grove

Fellow, Research Fellow

Global Centre on Healthcare and Urbanisation

Hannah is an urban health geographer and planner, with an interest in how social and physical environments influence our health and wellbeing. With experience that bridges academia, policy, and practice, she is interested in how we can co-design environments and communities that promote a good quality of life, whilst recognising and addressing existing socio-spatial injustices and health inequities.

Hannah has recently joined the Global Centre on Healthcare and Urbanisation (GCHU) as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in healthy urbanism. Her research interests span urban health and social geography, healthy urban planning, critical social policy, and geographies of ageing. She is passionate about innovative methods and methodologies including the use of qualitative, geo-spatial and community-based participatory approaches to understand lived experiences of place.

Prior to joining the GCHU, Hannah worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher and Assistant Professor at Dublin City University, as a Research Assistant at Queens University Belfast, and as a Planning Policy Officer at Adur & Worthing Council. She completed her PhD in the Department of Geography at Maynooth University, which explored how older people define and enact ageing well in place within the Greater Dublin Area.
