Gund Postdoctoral Fellow, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences

Caitlin Morgan is a transdisciplinary food systems scientist with expertise in mixed qualitative methods and interdisciplinary collaboration. In her current role as a Postdoctoral Associate in UVM’s Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences, she is helping spearhead a “serious gaming” project aimed at developing better policy mechanisms to promote food access and health equity between sustainable farms and their regional communities.

Caitlin’s doctoral work focused on how change agents envision a more just and sustainable food system and how they pursue those ideas through their daily actions. Her research and education have taken her from Philadelphia to Denmark, and to agroecological farms in rural New York State, Cuba, and southeastern Brazil.
