Advisor Comments (Dr. Ricardo Hernandez)

Alex is the definition of resiliency, hard work, and dedication. I have known Alex as his degree advisor and his instructor. During my interactions with Alex, I have realized that his commitment towards completing his goals is unmatched, even under difficult circumstances. Behind his tranquil and quiet personality, there is an intelligent individual not afraid to work hard. I wish Alex the best success in his next chapter, and I have no doubt he will master any new challenges on his path.
