About me


Hello! I am Hernán, an SLU student in Plant Biology. I was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia and hold two bachelor degrees from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana: one in Biology and another in Industrial Microbiology. Now I live in Sweden, where I pursue my MSc. and ride my bicycle everyday!

I consider myself a plant enthusiast. Therefore I enjoy spending time around plants, either outdoors, in the laboratory or in my room, where I have a little nursery going on 🙂 . Besides plants, I like art, technology, movies, TV series, dancing, photography and politics. Also, I’m a huge fan of “grandma activities” such as knitting, baking and reading newspapers.

“Life is about sharing” is my life statement. Indeed, I would like my life to be composed of shared laughter, dinners, coffees, parties, pictures, travels, bike rides, hikes, nice places and so on! I also like to share what I think, what I have done and what I will do. And of course, I would like people to share the same with me 🙂

I almost forget to mention it. Green is my favorite colour.
