Before joining AWA, Hanna worked as a Consultant Software Developer within the field of healthcare and MedTech. She gained experience in full-stack development, cloud computing and data-driven improvements during this time.

Hanna graduated from the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University with a Master of Science degree in Engineering Physics. She studied a wide range of courses within the world of physics and mathematics as well as mechanics and programming. Her specialisation was Image Analysis & Machine Learning, which resulted in her master’s thesis at NVIDIA in Lund. Here Hanna evaluated a novel metric to be used in machine learning.

Parallel with her studies, Hanna was also engaged in several types of non-profit work. One of these was as co-founder of FREJA, a network for women and non-binary who studied physics, mathematics or nanoscience at LTH. The aim is to contribute to a more equal technology business.
