Eduardo Fernandez grew up in Madrid, Spain.  He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in physics and mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.  He then went on to earn a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.  His thesis work dealt with models of magnetofluid turbulence in fusion and astrophysical plasmas.  After living in Wisconsin for nine years, he moved to the San Francisco Bay area to do research on Hall thruster plasmas as a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford University.  Eduardo joined the faculty at Eckerd College in the fall of 1999.  He is now a tenured associate professor, teaching in the physics and mathematics disciplines.  His research interests lie in the areas of turbulence in fusion and astrophysical plasmas, as well as electric propulsion (particularly Hall thrusters).  Eduardo's hobbies include playing basketball and enjoying the beach with his family.
