Thesis: Mapping the Future: Contrasting Rural and Urban Cuban Challenges to Preventative Care and the Future through Participatory Scenario Planning

I am currently researching the effects on the easing of economic restrictions between the U.S. and Cuba on the future of Cuban healthcare and economic resiliency through a lens of participatory scenario planning. Through the International Scholars Program, I have been able to work on Participatory Scenario Planning with Professor Mische. I will continue to work with her on her futures and participatory planning research throughout the duration of my senior year.

I have received two Experiencing the World (ETW) Fellowships from the Kellogg Institute, and a Kellogg/Kroc Undergraduate Research Grant as well. During my first ETW, I explored the role of Community Health Workers in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Then, I worked at an innovative biopsychosocial clinic in the rural town of Boaco, Nicaragua. Finally, this past summer, I worked to understand the complexities with how Cubans, in healthcare and tourism, perceive the ever-changing landscape of the future. I have also been a recipient of two Kellogg conference grants, to attend the Winter Youth UN Assembly in New York, and present my research in Brazil at EHU, a university in Lithuania.
