Pablo García-Álvarez was born in Fabero del Bierzo (León, Spain) in 1979. He obtained his PhD at the University of Oviedo (2006) working with high-nuclearity ruthenium carbonyl clusters under the supervision of Javier A. Cabeza. After exploring some mixed-metal chemistry of representative elements in work with Robert E. Mulvey at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK) he returned to the University of Oviedo in 2010 as a Juan de la Cierva researcher. In 2014 he gained a position as a Ramón y Cajal research fellow. His research is focused on new developments of the coordination chemistry of heavier carbene analogues for further catalytic applications. He has authored more than 70 scientific publications.
