Hana’s passion for politics and elections began in her childhood when she had a chance to watch her home country Slovakia slowly transition from post-communist country to democracy. As a data election assistant, Hana helps with modelling, programming, and analyzing survey data for political, non-profit, and corporate clients.
Prior to joining GSG, Hana worked as an Advisor at the Slovak Permanent Mission to the UN, focusing on international development and Security Sector Reform. She received her PhD from the University of Trento where she specialized in international politics and conflict studies. Hana has also spent some time in Liberia, where she collected data and analyzed the course of 2017 Presidential elections with the European Union.
In her spare time, she loves taking long walks to the riverbank in Williamsburg to watch the NYC skyline and searching for the best brunch places in her neighborhood.
