Gravé grew up in Israel and Italy and studied physics and electrical engineering at Tel Aviv University. He earned his doctorate in applied physics from Caltech in Pasadena, Calif. Gravé has led high-tech projects in avionics in Israel and has been a senior scientist and consultant at FUB, the research institute in the Ministry of Telecommunications in Rome, Italy, before joining academic life at the University of Pittsburgh. He has been with Elizabethtown College since 2002.
