In his doctoral dissertation he explored the possible implications of collateral re-use for financial stability.

His research has been supported by the Global Law in Finance Network, the University of Oxford, the European Central Bank, and Banco Santander, among others.

Javier has been the recipient of many academic awards, including the prestigious “la Caixa” Fellowship (2011) and the GLawFin Fellowship (2013-16).

Javier is fluent in Spanish, English and French, has an intermediate command of Mandarin Chinese, and a basic knowledge of Farsi and Arabic.

Supervision

He also welcomes applications in the broad area of law and economic development.
