Sponsor: FPI Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación Grant


"Graduated in 2019 in Anthropology and Human Evolution at the Rovira i Virgili University (URV, Tarragona). In 2022 I finished the Master in Quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution (Erasmus Mundus) also at the URV (Tarragona).

Currently, I am beneficiary of a Predoctoral Grant (FPI; PRE2022-102290) to carry out my PhD supervised by Dr. Rosa Huguet in zooarchaeology and taphonomy. The main objective of this PhD Thesis is to identify and characterize the different fossil assemblages from the lower levels of the Sima del Elefante site (Sierra de Atapuerca) in order to determine the origin, formation processes and functionality of the accumulations inside the cave."
