Miguel Alcubierre was born in 1964 in Mexico City, and took a degree in physics, and a Master of Science in theoretical physics at Facultad de Ciencias (School of Science) of the National University (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, or UNAM).

At the end of 1990 he moved to Cardiff to work towards a PhD in the area of Numerical Relativity, and since 1993 he has been working, still with Numerical Relativity, at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Wales.

Alcubierre is probably best known for his 1994 paper "The Warp Drive: Hyper-fast travel within general relativity", in which he describes a model for faster than light travel, or the "Alcubierre Warp Drive".
