I have a History degree by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and a Master in Prehistory and Archaeology by the Universitat Rovira i Virgili. Currently, I am part of IPHES team and I work with them in Atapuerca’s Project.
I am working in my PhD Thesis, which is focused on the study of Lithic Refits of Middle Pleistocene sites, specifically the sites of Gran Dolina, in the Sierra de Atapuerca (Burgos), and La Cansaladeta (Tarragona). The aim of my dissertation is to apply the lithic refits study as a tool to identify discrete and individual events of movement and actions, the spatial dispersion within the settlement and the organization of the activities and its development by the hominids that produced them.
