SCIENTIFIC STAFF

Since 2004, I am a Titular Scientist at the Milá and Fontanals Institution (CSIC), where I focus my research on the study of use-wear traces in lithic, bone and shell prehistoric artifacts. I am currently directing research projects related to the human occupation of high mountain areas in the Pyrenees; I co-direct the High Mountain Archeology Group (UAB-CSIC) and I am a founding member of the permanent commission of the UISPP: Human Ocupation of Mountains Enviroments (HOME).

I have conducted several research projects in Nicaragua on the exploitation of coastal resources (“Economy and environment on the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua: diversity, complementarity and change in prehistory” – HUM2005-02268 / HIST), as well as on fisheries in Prehistory in Russia (“Resources forgotten in the study of prehistoric groups: the case of fishing in Meso-Neolithic societies of the Russian Plain” – HAR2008-04461 / HIST). At present, I collaborate in several research projects as a functional analyst, among which the most important are the settlement of the American continent (directed by Eric Boëda-CNRS) and another in the Strait of Gibraltar region (directed by José Ramos from the University of Cadiz).
