Eva Hevia completed her Ph.D. degree, from the Universidad de Oviedo (Spain) in 2003, under the supervision of the late Victor Riera. In 2006, after a three-year appointment at the University of Strathclyde (UK) as a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow working with Robert Mulvey, she took up a Lectureship at the same institution. Subsequently, she was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2010, and to full Professor in 2013. In 2019, Eva moved to the University of Bern where she is currently a Professor in Inorganic Chemistry. Research in her group focuses on polar organometallic chemistry at the crossroads of inorganic, organic, and green chemistry.

Eva has published over 180 papers and she is an elected fellow at the European Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Her research has been recognised with several awards, including the RSC Corday-Morgan Prize (2017), GDCh Arfvedson-Schlenk Prize (2021) and the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry Excellence Award (2021).
