Megan Clinch

Title: Dr
Lecturer in Medicine and Society

Megan has a background in social anthropology and completed her PhD at the BIOS Centre LSE. She has conducted research at the Institute of Public Health at the University of Cambridge, and the Faculty of Social Science at the Open University, and undertaken a visiting postdoctoral fellowship at the Centre for Medical Science and Technology Studies at the University of Copenhagen.

She is currently developing research that explores how different forms of investigation, experimentality, evidence, and evaluation are understood and managed in the development of public health interventions. This research contributes to her broad interest in the politics of evidence in contentious practice situations and the emergence of interdisciplinary research as a means of managing them.

Megan teaches medical anthropology, medical sociology and qualitative research methods at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
