Dr. Antonio Pineda (ORCID 0000-0002-3767-8590). Doctorate Erasmus Mundus in Quaternary and Prehistory (2018) and Master Erasmus Mundus in Quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution (2014) by Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) of Tarragona.
Specialist in Paleolithic Archeology, I focused my research on Taphonomy, Zooarcheology, Experimental Archeology and Human Paleoecology. My Ph.D., with an excellent cum laude grade, was recognized with the Special Prize of Doctorate of the University. My research has focused on the study of the role played by hominins in the formation of the Barranc de la Boella deposits and their relationship with other predators, as well as on the issue of taphonomic interpretation of Lower Palaeolithic open-air sites.
I am member of the research and work teams of the Barranc de la Boella, Sierra de Atapuerca and Abric Romaní sites. I collaborate in Excavation and Research Projects financed by the Generalitat of Catalonia, the Spanish Government and the French CNRS.
I am currently starting my first post-doc in the Department of Prehistory, Ancient History and Archeology of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid with financial support of the Ministerio de Ciencia e Investigación del Gobierno de España (Subprogram Juan de la Cierva - Formación (FJC2019-040804-I)).
