Dr Megan Clinch, BA MA PhDReader in Anthropology of Public HealthCentre: Centre for Public Health & PolicyEmail: email@example.comProfileResearchPublicationsSupervisionProfileI am a Social Anthropologist, and undertook my doctoral research at the BIOS Centre, London School of Economics. I have conducted research at the Institute of Public Health at the University of Cambridge, the Faculty of Social Science at the Open University, and undertaken a visiting postdoctoral fellowship at the Centre for Medical Science and Technology Studies at the University of Copenhagen. I am currently the lead of the Global Public Health and Policy Unit. I am also the Public Advisory Panel lead, a theme that crosscuts all Wolfson Institute of Population Health (WIPH) activity. In this role I am working with colleagues from across the WIPH, QMUL and local stakeholders to co-design a strategy for socially engaged research and teaching that aims to tackle health inequalities across East London.ResearchResearch Interests:My research focuses on developing methodologies for the collective and equitable production of public and planetary health knowledge. This entails critical engagement with practices of co-production and public involvement in research, including the development of community-based blue and green infrastructure for climate and flood adaptation. Through this interest I have developed several projects in which I collaborate with socially engaged arts practitioners and members of the public to co-produce knowledge that seeks to act on complex public health challenges. Together these activities provide a way for me to explore how different forms of investigation, evidence, and evaluation are negotiated and contested in the development of complex multi-stakeholder public health interventions. I also work with local community organisations across east London to build their research and evaluation capacity.PublicationsPlease click through to see a complete list of Megan's publications.
