Graduated in History at UCLM (Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha) in 2017, with special mention in Historical Heritage. In 2019 I finished the Master’s Degree in Quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution at URV (Universitat Rovira i Virgili), carrying out my Erasmus mobility at MNHN (Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle), in Paris.

This same year I received the predoctoral fellowship FPU18/02291 (MEFP). My PhD is focused on Forensic Taphonomy of collective burials and cremations during the Recent Prehistory in different sites in the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula. The main interest is to reconstruct the taphonomic history of different assemblages, to analyze the human remains from a forensic anthropological perspective and to identify and describe the palaeopathologies present in bones (especially evidences in skeletons of interpersonal violence). By doing this, we can have a more complete picture of this sites, the funerary practices between Neolithic and Bronze Age, the state of health of the population at the time of their death, and the alteration of the osseous accumulations until our days by different taphonomic agents, including the possible anthropic intervention on the remains, whether in antemortem, perimortem or postmortem phases.
