Morgan’s research interests center on science, policy, and social change in international spaces. In broad terms, she is interested in the "human" side of these common spaces: how are they used? by whom? to what end? More specifically, her PhD research at Cambridge's Scott Polar Research Institute examines scientific institutions in the polar regions, asking how they have evolved to become more gender inclusive over time. Morgan became interested in the polar regions during the austral summers of 2011-12 and 2012-13, when she worked for the US Antarctic Program at McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Her PhD research also builds upon undergraduate training in political science at the University of Pennsylvania, as well as early career experiences in cross-cultural communication and science education. Her research is motivated by a belief that in order to create a better world, it is essential to understand how institutions can become more diverse and equitable; and she is driven to share her excitement about the possibilities opened up with a better understanding of our shared global spaces.
