Javier is an electronics engineer and a physicist leading the Hardware and Timing section in CERN’s Accelerator Controls Group. He is the initiator of the Open Hardware Repository ( and co-author of the CERN Open Hardware Licence. At CERN, he specialises in timing systems, and he leads the White Rabbit project, an extension of IEEE-1588 which allows sub-nanosecond synchronisation in highly-distributed controls and data acquisition systems. He also enjoys outreach activities such as guiding visitors at CERN, teaching groups of students or telling others about Open (Science | Data | Access | Software | Hardware).
