Megan is a researcher, activist, and doctoral candidate at the University of Vermont in natural resources and ecological economics. Her dissertation research explores the intersection of narrative, power, and sociotechnical innovation in how energy futures are imagined and enacted within fossil fuel producing regions of Canada and the United States. Megan is a graduate fellow at the Gund Institute for Environment, is an organizing member of DegrowUS, and has worked with several organizations on social justice research, particularly around environmental liabilities in extractive industries. She is a regular collaborator in politically motivated performance art and seeks to infuse care and conviviality into her work and action.
