Assistant Professor, Economics Department, LSE
Rachael Meager is an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at the London School of Economics and Political Science 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.
