Praveena Fernes

Tulane University

Praveena Fernes graduated in 2018 from Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. In 2019-2020, she curated Visible Ghosts, a virtual installation that illuminates villagers’ evolving relationship to the Mun River and wetlands in Thailand over the past quarter century, through objects, maps, and citizen science research. She will study political ecology and public health as a Marshall Scholar and hopes to use this training to tackle the twin crises of inequality and climate change. Praveena’s belief in the power of storytelling feeds her daily practice. She is a maker of higgledy-piggledy to-do lists, group house dinners, and the occasional scrapbook.
