Graduated in History at URV (Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona) in 2020. I obtained my Erasmus Mundus master's degree in Quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution Master at URV in 2022.

In the same year, I received a Predoctoral Fellowship FPU (MEFP) to carry on my PhD supervised by Dr. Josep Maria Vergès Bosch and Dr. Marcos García Diez. The main interest of the project is to study the recently discovered Paleolithic rock art engravings from la Cova de la Font Major (Espluga de Francolí, Tarragona). This research is focused on the topographic registration, thematic and technical analysis, the sequence of engraving’s execution and the spatial distribution using the high resolution 3D documentation of the graphic ensemble. Furthermore, the geological and archaeological evidences will allow us to reconstruct the sediment volume and the cave access during the paleolithic period.
