Megan graduated from University College Dublin with a BSc in Environmental Biology in 2019, and then went on to obtain an MSc in “Environmental Technology” from University College Dublin in 2020.

Megan has worked on a range of freshwater and saltwater research topics. For her undergraduate thesis, she investigated whether river impoundments impact oxygen and temperature profiles within riverine systems. Following on from this, for her master’s thesis she assessed the recovery potential of degraded marine plastics based on their physio-chemical compositions.

Before joining Acclimatize, Megan worked on the EU Swim Project, where she sampled and analysed bathing water as part of the development of a system for live bathing water monitoring.
