Rodrigo Hernando, MSc

After feeling like academic research was not made for him, Rodrigo developed a prolific career in the Pharma Industry. He then witnessed the difficulties most researchers had when trying to find a job outside the Academia and started a company dedicated to helping other scientists land their ideal job in the industry. He is an international speaker and has developed several courses to shed light on the Academia-to-Industry transition.
