Julianna Kenny-Serrano
Julianna is a junior double-majoring in Neuroscience and Philosophy from Mexico City.

During the summer, she worked with the Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust to promote socio-environmental development in the community of Vieques, Puerto Rico. Her research focused on environmental conservation’s impact on generational wealth and opportunities. Julianna hopes to dedicate her life to equitable health initiatives, and as such, spent her last academic year doing research at MIT’s Fluid Interface lab, where she helped design wearable synthetic biotechnology to promote real-time diagnostic medicine. On campus, she has spent the last three years working as a Student Assistant at the Office of Admissions, and is serving as this year’s Deputy Chief Justice of the Honor Code, as well as being a member of the Mock Trial team. Julianna is fluent in Spanish and French, and has a command of Portuguese and Italian. Although unsure of where exactly the next years will take her, Julianna sees herself pursuing a JD, and practicing law with the goal of improving health access in immigrant communities.
