Former Intern


Intern, Communications

Hannah Hernandez serves as the communications intern for NTI. In this role, she collaborates with the Global Nuclear Policy Program, Global Biological Policy Program, and Nuclear Materials Security Program in producing reports, briefings, projects, and social media campaigns.

She transferred from a community college in Fall 2020 to Yale University where she graduated Class of 2023 in Political Science and a distinction in her major. She is specifically interested in U.S.-China relations and its intersection with human rights and nuclear politics. Currently, she is a fellow with Yale Jackson School of Global Affairs’ Nuclear Security Program where she participates in conversations with scholars and scholar-practitioners in the nuclear security field. While at Yale, her senior essay explored how Chinese domestic politics between the Chinese Communist Party, Central Military Commission, People’s Liberation Army, and People’s Liberation Army Rocket Force shaped Chinese nuclear posture under Xi Jinping. She also drafted and published a report on the persecution of Uyghurs in Xinjiang with the Yale Law School Lowenstein International Human Rights Clinic. During her free time, she enjoys cooking, reading, running, antique shopping, and collecting vintage globes and cameras.
