I’m working in IPHES as General Research Coordinator. In my professional life, I have frequently tried to incorporate new transferable skills into my overall experience. I don't have any special training in sciences. I coursed a B.A., a M.A., a Cultural Management Postgraduate Course, and I am PhD in Arts and Philosophy (Quaternary and Prehistory).

As Administrative Officer trained in History and Cultural Heritage Management, I contributed to the Atapuerca Project and related projects since 1990 both in the fieldwork and administratively from backstage. I also worked as Project Officer (1999-2005) for the Area de Prehistòria (Department of History) at Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) in Tarragona; I also contributed as Corporate Communication Manager in Fundación Atapuerca at Burgos (2000-2006). Moreover, I was also CEO (1999-2006) of the company Arqueoline, SL a spin-off already transferred outside URV, and finally I had some roles in the creation of IPHES since 2005, and also in its further development.

Currently, my general work in IPHES is to think about the ways to reach the goals of the centre. I contribute to this as a source of ideas, as a draftsman of projects and prospecting new horizons for the members and staff of IPHES.
