Megan first joined Tina Grotzer's research team in 2006 to work on the causal patterns curriculum modules and some early stages of the research that informed the Causal Learning in a Complex World (CLiC) project. She then taught K-6 science at an independent school in the DC area and spent a year as a Science Education Analyst at the National Science Foundation before returning to HGSE as a doctoral student in 2013. Megan's doctoral research focuses on how children and adults understand the nature of science and its relationship to religion and other ways of knowing, as well as the implications of these understandings for formal and informal science education. She holds an A.B. in Psychology from Harvard College and an Ed.M. in Human Development and Psychology from HGSE.
