Developing technology for the public good
Boston University's School of Public Health (SPH) profiles Mark Hernandez, a data scientist and researcher at MIT Lincoln Laboratory and an SPH alum. Hernandez went to SPH for his Master of Public Health degree through the Lincoln Scholars Program, which supports staff members in pursuing graduate degrees with the intention to bring the expertise they gain back to the Lab. Now, Hernandez works in the Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief Systems Group at Lincoln Laboratory. Much of his work centers around leveraging his technical skillset to support public health data analysis, impact evaluation, and geospatial analysis.
