Brief CV

I completed my PhD on the Archaeology of Mountain Cultural Landscapes from the University Rovira i Virgili (URV) in 2013. I have held postodctoral positions at the State University of New York at Buffalo (US), the Universitat de les Illes Balears (Balearic Islands) and the McDonald Institute for Archaeological research at the University of Cambridge (UK). I am currently employed at ICAC as a Beatriu de Pinós – Marie Curie cofund program fellow.

My research focuses on the study of present landscapes as the result of long-term human-environment interactions and, consequently, part of our cultural heritage. As a landscape archaeologist, I work with archaeological, historical and geospatial data in the context of multidisciplinary studies directed to understand how human societies have inhabited and conceptualized their environment through time.

I am directing the project TrackSherd which explores the integration of combined high resolution aerial imagery and computational analysis in survey workflows. I am also directing the project “L’Alt Congost between Late Antiquity and Early Middle Ages” focused on the changes of settlement patterns between the 6th and 12th C. AD in a valley situated in central Catalonia. I participate in the other projects of the ICAC’s Landscape Archaeology Research Group (GIAP).
