Research Interests:

Megan is currently a Co-Investigator on the UK Climate Resilience Programme project Mobilising Adaptation: Governance of Infrastructure through Co-Production (MAGIC) . She is also completing the Wellcome Trust funded Test Sites project in collaboration with the curatorial organisation Arts Catalyst and artist Ruth Levene. In both of these projects she is developing anthropological and artistic methodologies aimed and supporting communities to reflect on and meet the challenges of living with climate induced flooding in the United Kingdom.

Building on her commitment to civically minded teaching and research, she is also working with a range of third sector and statutory partners to develop community led research, evaluation and education capacity across the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Together these activities provide a means through which she can explore how different forms of investigation, experimentality, evidence, and evaluation are understood and negotiated in the development of complex multi stakeholder public health interventions.
