Rachael Meager

Associate Professor, University of New South Wales

Rachael Meager is an Associate Professor at the University of New South Wales with research interests in development economics and econometrics.

She works on applied Bayesian modelling of treatment effect heterogeneity at multiple levels within data sets and literatures, with the goal of measuring generalisability and quantifying uncertainty around our knowledge base in development economics. Her recent work has focused on aggregating evidence on distributional treatment effects using sets of quantiles or parametric generating models within a Bayesian hierarchical framework. Her research in progress is focused on linking group-level distributional effects to individual heterogeneity with high-dimensional covariates, selection bias within and across literatures in development economics, and developing robustness metrics for empirical analysis.
