Juan joined the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) in April 2017 as a research associate in energy law and policy for the WiseGRID project. Queen Mary is the legal counsel of the WiseGRID consortium. The main objective of the project is to provide a set of solutions and technologies to increase the smartness, stability and security of an open, consumer-centric European energy grid. Juan is also conducting research under the Jean Monnet Chair.

Prior to joining CCLS, Juan served as a legal officer in the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency in Brussels after completing his Blue Book traineeship in the same agency. The tasks revolved around the legal aspects of the financial regulation of grants and procurements as well as data protection within the framework of the European Union's funding programmes in the fields of education, culture, audiovisual, sport, citizenship and volunteering.
