Mario’s doctoral work focuses on the relationship between economics and international law, while engaging in conversation with the scholarship and methods of law and political economy, law and economics, and critical legal theory. His research aims to critically trace the course of economic and legal knowledge in challenging the conventional wisdom that sustains the forms of international economic cooperation prevailing today. Mario’s dissertation explores this theme in the legal and policy domains of antitrust, trade, tax, and foreign investment. It is tentatively titled: “Is International Economic Law, Economic?”

While at Georgetown, Mario has been a Fellow at Georgetown Law’s Center for the Advancement of the Rule of Law in the Americas (CAROLA), a Senior Fellow at the New Markets Lab, a Salzburg Cutler Fellow, and a Fellow at Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law, as well as a Teaching Assistant for several courses. Prior to arriving at Georgetown, Mario was an advisor to the Director-General of the Tax and Customs Administration of Colombia and served as a delegate to the OECD, WTO, UN, and other international fora. He was also an adjunct professor at Universidad de los Andes.
