Dr. in Prehistory by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (1995). I belong to the Atapuerca Research Team since 1987, team that was awardwinner in 1997 with the Premio Príncipe de Asturias for Scientific and Technical Research.

I got a postdoctoral grant in Cambridge for 1996 and 1997, where I was Visiting Fellow at the MacDonald Institute for Archaeological Research. After this I came to work at the University of Tarragona in 1998. I'm part of the IPHES from the beginning.

My work has focused in the Lower and Middle Pleistocene European technology, and the hominin dispersals in Eurasia, although since some years ago I'm developing several research lines about the evoultion of human cognition. In this sense, I'm leading a project of the Spanish Ministery of Science entitled: “ARQUEOMONA I and II: The evolution of human cognition through the study of the behavior of humans and chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) (HAR2009-07223, HAR2012-32548).
