Research Interests

Caitlin Schroering holds a PhD in Sociology from the University of Pittsburgh and a Master of Arts in Latin American Studies from the University of Florida. She is the Water Equity Postdoctoral Research Associate with the Pittsburgh Collaboratory for Water Research, Education, and Outreach at the University of Pittsburgh. Her research coalesces around multiple areas of social inquiry, including environmental sociology, resource conflicts, the human right to water, political economy, and transnational social movements, using feminist and anticolonial methodologies. Her primary line of research is based on extensive fieldwork with two movements fighting against water privatization, one in Brazil and one in the United States. She has 16 years of experience in community, political, environmental, and labor organizing.
