About Ernesto Hernandez

Life scientist and chemical engineer working at The University of Manchester. He started out his career as a distinguished technician working in the field of electromechanics. In his spare time, he indulged his passion for studying biology. This long-standing endeavour led him to win the first place in The National Olympiad of Biology in 1993. Coming from a poor family in deprived rural Mexico, studying Chemical Engineering proved to be an ideal way to make a living and find ways to use living systems in the search to solve a number of problems currently confronting society. It was during his undergraduate studies that he won two national contests for summer internships at Ohio State University and Los Alamos National Laboratory. Ernesto has been using microbes and their products in a variety of ways. They can, for instance, be used to convert a variety of wastes into natural gas (methane), to decontaminate water, soil and sludge, or to ease the flow of oil in deep underground oil reservoirs at tremendously high temperatures and pressures. Given his understanding of life systems and how they can be used for the good of the humankind, Ernesto has been invited to speak in plenary talks at international conferences, civil gatherings, state ceremonies, activist groups and other public events.

About this Opportunity

Grants are available for early career researchers (see Eligibility section) to attend a workshop in Mexico entitled Biorefinery research – promoting international collaboration for innovative and sustainable solutions.  Under the British Council Researcher Links scheme we will be holding a workshop on the above theme at the Mexican Institute of Petroleum, Mexico City, Mexico on the 18-22 May, 2015. The workshop is being coordinated by Dr Jhuma Sadhukhan and Dr Jorge Arturo Aburto Anell, and supported by Dr Elias Martinez Hernandez and other researchers.

Selected papers presented in the workshop will be considered for a Special Issue of the Chemical Engineering Research Design journal of the Institution of Chemical Engineers devoted to Biorefinery value chain creation.  Costs for the visa will be covered; however participants will be responsible for making all the necessary arrangements. Although this cost will not be covered by the British Council, participants are encouraged to purchase an adequate travel and medical insurance.

Key dates

Dates of the workshop – 18-22 May 2015
