More about Hannah:
Hannah Lider graduated from UW’s BME program in 2018 with certificates in International Engineering and South Asian Studies. After her first internship in Bangalore in 2015, she was hooked on the idea of combining technical knowledge and cultural competencies to solve medical problems in a global context. She began studying Hindi in 2015 and continued through the 8th semester level at UW with support from the Critical Language Scholarship Program in 2016. She participated in two consecutive summers of the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowship in Jaipur, India which empowered her use of Hindi while on Fulbright. Her Fulbright work revolved around the development of a new hemoglobin measurement device for remote clinical settings in collaboration with the outstanding non-profit, Barefoot College. When Hannah is not speaking Hindi or doing medical research, you can find her riding her motorcycle, playing ukulele, or pampering the street dog she brought home from India.
