Biography

A 1997 magna cum laude graduate of St. Andrew’s, Harvey returned to campus to teach, coach and continue his life-long pursuit of learning. While a student at St. Andrew’s, Harvey received the Walter L. Harrison Prize for Mathematics and the William Day Scott Prize for Science. He enjoyed playing varsity soccer and basketball.

After graduation, Harvey joined the honor’s program at the University of Delaware majoring in chemical engineering. He received the Amerada Hess award, the Charles B. Evans Prize, membership in Tau Beta Pi and a degree with distinction for his thesis on the rational design of crystallization conditions for model protein molecules. While at Delaware, Harvey was invited to conduct research in Hamburg, Germany, at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, the University of Cape Town in South Africa and DuPont’s Experimental Station in Wilmington.

Upon graduation, Harvey joined the University of California, Berkeley, where he majored in chemical engineering and minored in financial economics. He was a student instructor for the first undergraduate and last graduate chemical engineering courses students took. Harvey volunteered at the school in Children’s Hospital of Oakland and at the San Jeronimo Bilingual School in Cofradia, Honduras.

Before returning to St. Andrew’s Harvey was employed by Credit Suisse as a Fixed Income Business Analyst and a Biotechnology Equity Research Analyst and by the University of Delaware as a postdoctoral researcher. Harvey has mentored many students during his research career, presented his work at national meetings and has published his research in peer reviewed scientific journals.

Harvey enjoys sports, math, movies, friends, traveling, reading and writing nonfiction and is particularly interested in consciousness, artificial intelligence, neuroscience and Zen philosophy. He lives with his wife, English teacher Neelima Reddy, and his daughters Leela and Maia in a house near the soccer fields.
