Get to Know Fernando

"I was born and raised in Santiago, Chile, and completed my BSc in Industrial Engineering. After teaching for two years at a low-income high school, I joined an oil retailer company where I took a PM role first and then an SW engineer role, leading ML and computer vision initiatives. My passion for technology and desire to enrich my skillset (both hard and soft) brought me to the Tepper School. This was the best decision ever! Tepper is a first-level institution, has top-notch tech courses, and is a great community.

"I am currently enrolled in the Technology Strategy and Product Management track and an active participant of Business & Technology Club and Latin American Business Club. My hobbies include flyfishing, soccer, and diving. I am here in Pittsburgh with my wife and 11-month old son. So far, Pittsburgh has been a great city: easy, safe, and of course plenty of things to do throughout the year."
