Megan graduated from the University of Reading with a BSc Honours Degree in Agriculture. During her degree, she took an interest in novel and innovative climate change solutions within agronomic environments, with previous research investigating the use of anti-transpirants as a low-cost and practical method to protect crops from increasing concentrations of tropospheric ozone. She began her PhD at the University of Illinois in the summer of 2022 and subsequently joined LC3M. She is part of a team working on the RockFACE (Free Air Carbon-dioxide Enrichment) project, which is exploring the potential interaction of elevated atmospheric CO2 and enhanced rock weathering in a maize-soybean cropping rotation. Her aim is to help develop these new agronomic solutions that benefit both the farmer and the environment.
