RIGOBERTO HERNANDEZ
Georgia Institute of Technology

Rigoberto Hernandez is professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Georgia Tech, co-director of the Center for Computational Molecular Science and Technology, and director of the Open Chemistry Collaborative in Diversity Equity (OXIDE).  In 2014 he was recognized by the American Chemical Society (ACS) with its Award for Encouraging Disadvantaged Students into Careers in the Chemical Sciences.  He is a fellow of the ACS and a member of its board of directors, as well as a fellow of the American Physical Society and the AAAS.  His research group investigates the emergent behavior of molecular assemblies. Using theoretical and computational tools, he characterizes and predicts the motion of proteins and materials at multiple scales from nanometers to meters.  He is the recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER Award; a Research Corporation Cottrell Scholar Award; an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship; and a Humboldt Research Fellowship.
