Pedro studied medicine at the University of Havana and graduated in 1972. During his medical studies he was part of the team working developing ERP multivariate statistical software the first Cuban microcomputer (1970). He also got a B.Sc. in Mathematics in 1973. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1978. In 1979 he undertook his postdoctoral training on “Neurometrics and Computational Techniques” and “Biophysical Modeling of brain electrical activity” with Prof. E. Roy John at the Brain Research Lab of New York University USA. In 2011 Cuban National Science Degree Council granted him a Doctorate in Science as a Lifetime Achievement Award for his pioneering contribution to quantitative EEG and neuroimaging. 

He is the general vice-director for research of the Cuban Neuroscience Center; of which he was the co-founder in 1990. Since 2013 he is also a Distinguished Professor of Neuroinformatics at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China. In 2015 he was designated as the director of the Joint China-Cuba Laboratory for Frontier Research in Translational Neurotechnology. He is a senior professor of the Higher Institute for Medical Sciences, full member of the Cuban Academy of Sciences, full member of the Latin American Academy of Sciences and ex officio Program Chair of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping.
