ADRC-W First Year PhD Student Awarded Prestigious Housing Prize

ADRC-W PhD student Hannah Browne Gott has been awarded the prestigious Housing Studies Association Valerie Karn Early Career Researcher Prize.
Hannah picked up the award for her paper ‘Housing rights, homelessness prevention and a paradox of bureaucracy?’.  The prize is awarded to the best early career paper at the Housing Studies Association Annual Conference.
Speaking following receipt of the award, Hannah said: “I am delighted to have won this award. This was my first time attending and presenting at an academic conference, so it is a huge honour to have received this. I hope that by winning this accolade I can contribute to improving our homelessness services here in the UK.”
Hannah is conducting her PhD on housing rights and homelessness at the School of Geography and Planning at Cardiff University under the guidance of Dr Peter Mackie. Dr Mackie said: “As a team we are delighted for Hannah. This is a significant achievement and one which speaks volumes given that it has been awarded in Hannah’s first year. I look forward to working with Hannah as she pursues this interesting and very much needed study path.”
Prior to starting her PhD, Hannah studied at the London School of Economics and Political Science and completed an MSc in Human Rights where she focused on looking critically at legal and philosophical rights to challenge inequalities.
Hannah’s PhD, ‘Analysing the relationships between health and homelessness services in a Welsh Local Authority’, aims to identify the irregularity of experiences felt by homeless people in Wales  when accessing primary and secondary health services, while also comparing the health and health services use of the housed and homeless population in Wales.
