Meagan is a sub-national environmental politics scholar particularly interested in policy-driven maladaptation, non-human policy governance and policy-based redressal to environmental justice issues. Her doctoral fields of study include comparative politics, international relations, and political methodology. Meagan is currently working on four manuscripts: a systematic review of maladaptation literatures, policy evaluations of biodiversity conservation regimes, an overview for mechanisms which produce conditional maladaptation in biodiversity policy, and how systems of inequality induce maladaptation. Other recent projects include a look into the electoral payoffs for the Green New Deal for House Democrat incumbents in the 2020 national elections, which indicate that climate credentials do matter, but that these signals must be highly publicized to gain traction in partner with Aseem Prakash and Nives Dolsak, titled Electoral appeal of climate policies: The Green New Deal and the 2020 U.S. House of Representatives Elections (found here:
