Dr. Hector H. Hernandez
Originally from everywhere. It’s long and complicated, but so is life. Half Cuban, half Puerto Rican, born in Honduras. Along the way I played music, trained horses, cooked, and discovered science. This let me to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where I met my wife and also received a PhD in Chemical Biology from. I currently live in Abu Dhabi with my wife and daughter.
I explore the interrelatedness of biological, ecological, or technological networks. I run a laboratory where we research how microbial communities can regenerate soils and promote more productive and resilient plants.
