Javier Moreno-Rivero jm2227@cam.ac.uk Javier Moreno-Rivero is a researcher in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the University of Cambridge, focusing on translation policies of minoritized languages. He holds undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in translation (Universidad Pablo de Olavide, Universitat d'Alacant) and applied Spanish linguistics (Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo and Instituto Cervantes). He has held various academic positions in France (Rouen), the United Kingdom (Heriot-Watt, Sheffield and Open University) and the United States, where he was a Lecturer in Spanish at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) prior to joining Cambridge. In 2018, he was appointed Assessor in Spanish Translation by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University. He has extensive experience in higher education teaching and research; and his research interests lie in the fields of translation policy, minoritized languages and legal translation and interpreting. At the moment, he is in the editorial board of the International Journal for the Semiotics of Law (Springer) and the Journal of Language and Law.
