Pablo García-Álvarez was born in Fabero del Bierzo (León, Spain) in 1979. He gained his doctorate in 2006 at the University of Oviedo working with high-nuclearity ruthenium carbonyl clusters under the supervision of Javier A. Cabeza. After exploring some exciting mixed-metal chemistry of representative elements as an EU Marie Curie researcher at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK), working with Robert E. Mulvey, 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. He has authored more than 60 scientific publications. His research is focused on new developments of the coordination chemistry of heavier carbene analogues for further catalytic applications.
