Post-Doctoral Research Fellow

University of Stirling

Keila Meginnis joined the Applied Choice Research Group in October 2019 as a NERC-ESRC funded post-doctoral fellow. She completed her PhD at the University of Manchester in 2018, before moving to the University of Glasgow to work as a post-doctoral research assistant in the Lamberton Lab. There, she researched non-monetary numeraires in choice experiments, as part of a diverse team working on health and disease in low- and middle-income countries. Currently she is working on a project entitled The Economics of Marine Plastic Pollution. She is passionate about this project and is researching the value of removing plastic from marine environments, costs of removing and reducing plastic waste, and how governments can address this international problem. Her research interests include non-market valuation, environmental and health economics as well as behavioural issues in choice experiments, such as strategic bias.
