Jacqueline Meijer-Irons started the Evans School Ph.D. in Public Policy and Management program in 2006. Her research focuses on individual and household-level response to environmental stress in rural communities in Thailand. In particular, she is interested in learning how adaptive response to climate change might be moderated by intervening institutions and perceptions of risk.
