Dr Meghan Alexander is a Senior Research Associate within the School of Politics at the University of East Anglia and affiliated with the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. Working across the boundaries of political and environmental geography, Meghan’s research concentrates on matters of governance, policy dynamics and corresponding implications for resilience, well-being and social justice in the context of climate change adaptation in the Global North. Her current research examines how policy ‘lock-in’ dynamics are created and sustained in key sectors (including water, health and nature conservation) and the implications of this for mainstreaming climate change adaptation and leveraging change to accelerate transformative adaptation (https://adaptlockin.eu/).

Meghan holds a PhD in Geography from the Flood Hazard Research Centre of Middlesex University (awarded in 2014) and a BSc in Geography (First Class Hons) from the University of Wales Aberystwyth, where she was awarded the Gregynog & James Fairgrieve Prize for the highest academic achievement within the degree scheme. Since completing her PhD, Meghan has undertaken postdoctoral research at Middlesex University, the Sustainability Research Institute of the University of Leeds, Cardiff University and the University of East Anglia.
