Posgrado en Estados Unidos, 1997

I was born in Felanitx (Mallorca) in 1973. I hold an undergrad Law Degree by Universitat Pompeu Fabra (1995), and a Masters (1999) and a Doctorate Degree (2005) by the Yale Law School. From 2004 to 2011, I was a law clerk to Justice José Ramón Cossío at the Mexican Supreme Court. From August 2011, I am part of the Law Faculty at ITAM (Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México),  tenured from 2018. I am a Level II Reseracher at the Mexican National System of Researchers. For six years, I was the editor-in-chief of a peer-reviewed legal theory journal, Isonomía, and right now I serve on the Board of several academic journals. My main field is Constitutional Law and Comparative Constitutional Law. My writing focuses on courts, rights and constitutions. As four courts, I am interested in institutional design, judicial communication, and generally, judicial review - related issues. As for rights, I have focused on quality and non-discrimination, freedom of speech, multi-level rights protecrtion, proportionality analysis, procedural channels of rights protection. As for constitutions, I have written about Mexican patterns of constitutional change, and about Mexican and Latin American constitutionalism, viewed from a comparative perspective. Finally, I am increasingly involved in gender issues: sexual and reproductive rights, adjudication with gender.sensitivity, as well as "gender and constitutionalism approaches". I am at the general directing board of SELA (Seminario en Latinoamérica deTeoría Constitucional y Política), of the Mexican Chapter of I-con (International Society of Public Law), and belong to other national and international research networks.
