In 1999, under a NASA summer grant, he conducted research at the NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California

Although Dr. Harvey has done significant research in parallel programming, load balancing, and cluster computing, his primary research interest is in the area of computational linguistics. In particular Dr. Harvey is focusing on developing software tools to contribute to language acquisition and restoration of the indigenous languages of North America. The ACORNS project was established for this purpose.

Dr. Harvey has extensive experience in industry and was President of an automotive aftermarket value-added reseller for 13 years. He has considerable consulting experience working with firms such as Dunn & Bradstreet and Honeywell. He is also active in athletics, completing his 5th marathon at Boston in 1997. He was a college cross-country and track head coach from 1996 through 2001.
