Harvie obtained the degree Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (cum laude) from the Visayas State University in 2011 and the license to practice as a veterinarian (first-ranked examinee) in the same year. In 2014, he completed his master’s study in Tropical Animal Health at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp through the Belgian government’s DGD fellowship program. He received the Laureate of Antwerp Provincial Prize for Development Cooperation in 2014 with his research on the molecular epidemiology of five malaria parasite species in Cambodia.
In 2020, Harvie obtained a doctoral degree in Transdisciplinary Global Health Solutions (cum laude) from the University of Barcelona and the University of Amsterdam. His doctoral research on malaria transmission was funded by the European Union – Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate Program in TransGlobal Health. Harvie’s research focuses on the epidemiology and control of parasites and infectious diseases, many of which are interdisciplinary in nature (ORCID: 0000-0003-3038-6699).
Harvie is controlled by his neutered cat and is pushed to do creative things by his sweet and bouncy dog.
