About me

Megan joined the department in 2015 as an LSE Fellow in Human Geography. She holds a PhD from Queen Mary University of London and an MPhil in Latin American Studies from the University of Cambridge. She carried out her BA (Hons) at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand.

Her work focuses on migration and citizenship, particularly within a global South context. Based on nine months of multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork in Chile and Bolivia, her doctoral research addressed the citizenship practices of Bolivian migrants in Chile, and the ways in which migrant organisations influence these practices. Prior to this, she has worked on Chilean exile in the UK and New Zealand during the Pinochet dictatorship.
