Dr. Mark Hernandez is a registered professional civil engineer and an expert on the characterization and control of bioaerosols indoors and out. He runs a research lab that assesses the efficacy of new disinfection practices for the military, industrial hygiene, and sanitary engineering sectors. He’s the lead inventor on several patents that support various start-up companies. He’s worked side-by-side with some of the greatest minds in the industry throughout his educational career.
But, before all of that, Mark was a street kid whose path could have been much different. In his words, “education saved my life”.
On this episode, we discuss Mark’s journey from street kid to sought-after scientist who’s been making a difference the entire way. And we explore how his background and career have made him a champion of diversity, and a mentor to the underrepresented within the scientific community.
