HARVEY was born in Havana (Cuba, 1974) and graduated in Physics at the University of Havana (Cuba) in 1997. His research career started with the achievement of the MSc degree, also in Physics, at the University of Havana (Cuba) in 1999, then moved to Portugal in 2001 and earned his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Aveiro (Portugal) in 2005. He joined the Spanish system for Science and Technology in 2006, followed by research positions at the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), including research Fellowships of the Spanish Juan de La Cierva and Ramón y Cajal Programmes. He has recently got a Tenured Scientist position also at ICMM-CSIC from 2017.
