Fernando is originally from Bogota, Colombia and was involved in agriculture from an early age. Obtaining his BS and MS degrees from Cal Poly Pomona, he chose an emphasis in reproductive physiology. After receiving his DVM and PhD in Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University, he obtained board certification in the American College of Theriogenologists.

Fernando’s teaching and research emphasis has been in assisted reproduction technologies (ART) of cattle and horses. He currently leads the comparative ART program at Cal Poly involving technologies of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), embryo transfer and cryopreservation, genetic analysis and general reproductive management.
