Breu currículum

I obtained my PhD on high mountain archaeology at the Catalan Institute of Classical Archaeology (ICAC). Later on I held a postdoctoral fellowship to conduct fieldwork and GIS-based environmental modelling at the GEOLAB (CNRS, UMR 6042). In 2012 I moved to the UK to take a Nottingham Advance Research Fellowship at the Department of Archaeology where I directed the ‘Valentia Landscape Project’. In 2014 I obtained a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship at the Department of Archaeology at Sheffield where, together with Prof. Paul Halstead, I developed the project ‘HumanScapes’. I was a Research Associate at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research of the University of Cambridge working on the ERC-funded project TwoRains under the direction of Cameron Petrie from 2016 to 2018. I am now a Ramón y Cajal researcher and co-direct the Landscape Archaeology Research Group (GIAP) at ICAC. I currently work on a wide range of landscape-related topics. My research has mainly focused on the analysis of human-landscape dynamics in Mediterranean environments and beyond. I am also interested in theoretical approaches to the study of landscapes. During the last years I have developed extensive research on computational archaeology that includes but is not restricted to GIS and remote sensing techniques, field survey and site detection methods. I am currently working on the application of machine learning to archaeological research using cloud computing and big data sources (mostly multisource multitemporal satellite data, drone imagery and lidar).
