The first working period (1989-2002) was focused on urban archaeology. This began with an initial learning phase at the Taller Escola d’Arqueologia de Tarragona (TED’A, 1989 and 1990), I worked as a freelance professional between 1990 and 1993. In 1993 I became a member of Codex-Arqueologia i Patrimoni company, assuming the tasks of head of the intervention area. At the same time, between 1995 and 1999, I was an associate researcher at the Equip de Recerca Arqueomètrica de la Universitat de Barcelona (ERAUB), where I developed my doctoral thesis on La ceràmica comuna tardoantiga a Tàrraco (1999), published that same year by the Museu Nacional Arqueològic de Tarragona Tarragona. In those years, my research was associated with fieldwork and publications on the Roman villas of the Tarraconensis area, the discovery of the public baths and the cuniculus of the city, various aspects of funerary topography, intramural urban planning and ceramology. All this, preferably on the Late Antiquity.
In 2002 I joined at ICAC as a contract researcher, and I am currently a research professor. I combine this activity with teaching in the master’s degree in Applied Classical Archaeology at the UAB/ICAC/URV, and collaborations with the School of Architecture (ETSA/URV) and the Sant Fructuós Institute of Religious Sciences (INSAF). I coordinate the research team of Late Antique and Christian Archaeology, integrated in the MIRMED-GIAC (No. Generalitat 2021 SGR-790). As a researcher I have developed several research projects, primarily in the Tarragona area. Noteworthy projects include the first Archaeological Plan of Tarraco, studies on the city’s Circus and Amphitheatre and, especially, the Tarragona Cathedral project, with the discovery of the August Temple and the analysis of the late-antique transformation of the Acropolis. In recent years my activity has also focused on the techniques of representation and analysis of late-antique architecture and on the research project on the Visigothic city of València la Vella (Riba-roja de Túria, Valencian Country). I have carried out ministerial R&D projects plus another one funded by Recercaixa (2015) and other knowledge transfer projects.
I currently hold the Accreditation of Advanced Research / Professor by the The Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency (AQU).
