I have a History degree by the University of Castilla-La Mancha and a Master Erasmus Mundus in Quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution by the University of Rovira I Virgili. Currently, I collaborate and work in some of the main projects leaded by IPHES, like Abric Romaní and Atapuerca. My PhD thesis is focused on use-wear and residue analysis of lithic industry in high resolution Middle Paleolithic contexts. Specifically, the archaeological sites of Abric Romani (Barcelona, Spain) and Nahal Mahanayeem Outlet (Upper Jordan Valley, Israel). The aim of my thesis is to provide new data about the technical behaviors and subsistence strategies carried out in both sites in order to better understand the Neanderthal behaviour.
