Her research interests include the growth and development of the brain and skull, race relations, and human osteology. More specifically, Megan is interested in how social race, class, and disease affect normal, healthy, brain and skull growth in the individual. With the Richtsmeier Lab, Megan plans on conducting research that focuses on how psychosocial stress can impact the growth and development of the skull in mouse models.
