International Master in Quaternary and Prehistory (Erasmus Mundus grant) at the Rovira i Virgili University (Tarragona, Spain) and the Muséum National d‘Histoire Naturelle (Paris, France).

Currently, PhD student at the University of Rovira I Virjili, under the supervision of Professors Jordi Agusti and Mohamed Sahnouni.

For the PhD thesis, i am focusing on the study of the fossil micro-vertebrate assemblages from Tighennif (Formerly Ternifine, Algeria) hominin site, considering simultaneously micro-mammals and herpetofauna with an interdisciplinary approach (Taxonomy, Taphonomy, and Palaeoecology) which will significantly contribute to a better understanding of the environment and the climate that operated in this region of Northwestern Africa during this period.
