Hispanic Heritage Month: Fox News' Alicia Acuna Profiles Math Genius Pano Santos
The Ailes Apprentice Program’s special series honoring Hispanic Heritage month continued this morning on Fox and Friends with a profile of Hewlett-Packard senior researcher Pano Santos.
The Mexican math whiz was diagnosed with polio at the age of three, but has never let that stop him, even saying he likes to think he was "blessed with polio."
At HP, Santos has done innovative work inside the health care and transportation industries, creating models to make them more operational and efficient, but it’s his work on the outside, nurturing future mathematicians and researchers that is solidifying his legacy.
"Many people think that math is accounting and arithmetic, but the fun part is about the patterns," he explained. "It's about learning how things work ... so at some point the math starts talking to you in a way that you didn’t expect."
Santos' passion for his work is unmistakable.
"There is beauty in math. And in a way it is the language of nature. It's the language of God," he said.
