Graduated in History from the University Rovira I Virgili in 2012. I focused my study on prehistoric archaeology through the Master Erasmus Mundus in Quaternary and Prehistory in the same University until 2014, performing my Erasmus Mundus student mobility in the Università degli Studi di Ferrara (Ferrara, Italy).
Now I am the beneficiary of a Predoctoral Fellowship (FI-AGAUR-2015) with the financial sponsorship of the Generalitat de Catalunya. My Ph. D. is focused on the zooarchaeological and taphonomic study of diverse sites dating in the late Early and early Middle Pleistocene, such as Barranc de la Boella (Tarragona), Sierra de Atapuerca (Burgos) or Isernia La Pineta (Molise, Italy), emphasizing on the reconstruction of the palaeoecological contexts where the hominin groups developed their activities related to subsistence strategies.
