Breu currículum

I obtained my PhD on high mountain archaeology at the ICAC. Later on I held a postdoctoral fellowship to conduct fieldwork and GIS-based environmental modelling at the GEOLAB (CNRS, UMR 6042). In 2012 I moved to the UK to take a Nottingham Advance Research Fellowship at the Department of Archaeology where I directed the ‘Valentia Landscape Project’. In 2014 I obtained a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship at the Department of Archaeology at Sheffield where, together with Prof. Halstead, I developed the project ‘HumanScapes’. I was a Research Associate at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research working on the ERC-funded project TwoRains from 2016 to 2018.

I am now a Ramón y Cajal researcher at ICAC working on a wide range of landscape-related topics. My research has mainly focused on the analysis of human-landscape dynamics in Mediterranean environments, and particularly in the study of cultural landscapes. My PhD addressed the study of high mountain cultural landscapes in order to understand the long-term human impact and land-use. Since then I have continued working on mountain environments but also in Mediterranean lowland plains and coastal areas. I am also interested in theoretical approaches to the study of landscapes. On a more practical level, I have worked on the application of GIS and Remote Sensing techniques to archaeological research and the development of field surveying methodologies.
