About Dr Hannah Lock

I have been learning about the effects of high altitude on the human body since my Dad first introduced me to Alpine mountaineering 15 years ago. Back then I wanted to learn more about this subject to prepare me for higher mountains but I couldn't find a trusted, evidence based resource that was accessible to non-medical people (as I was then). Having gained experience as a mountaineer, an expedition doctor and a high altitude researcher I decided to create the resource I felt was missing - the Humans At High Altitude Platform.

Deaths and serious illness from high altitude illness are preventable and I want to share knowledge about this with anyone who is keen to learn. My aim is to make this information more accessible to a wider audience (not just for other medics!) so that more people can safely and confidently enjoy adventures in high altitude environments.
