Academic background

  • Erasmus Mundus Master in Quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution
    Universitat Rovira i virgili (30/09/2015)
  • Grau en Història
    Universitat de València (30/07/2013)

I graduated in History in Universitat de València. My final degree dissertation was entitled “The Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition in the Iberian Peninsula”. Later, I obtained my master degree in quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution in Universitat Rovira I Virgili in 2015.

My main research interest concerns complex systems theory and the application of computational modelling to archaeological research. For my master thesis dissertation, I studied the effect of demographical and mobility variables over the genetic composition and geographic distribution of the populations resulting from the interaction between Neanderthals and AMH. With this purpose I used an agent based model “Penisnula_Iberica_1.0”. This work lead to the publication of a paper entitled “Bio-cultural interactions and demography during the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition in Iberia: An agent-based modelling approach”.

 

Over the past years, I have been training myself in computational modelling and complex systems attending different seminars and workshops in international institutions and conferences. Also, I collaborated in R&D projects in Catalonia and Valencia that included archaeological fieldwork, laboratory duties and conference presentations.

 

In 2018 I obtained a PhD student position in the project Late Glacial and Postglacial Population History and Cultural Transmission in Iberia (c. 15000 – 8000 cal BP) – ERC Consolidator Grant 2015 Ref. 683018 (PI: Javier Fernández López de Pablo). For my PhD dissertation I will focus on the construction and analysis of computational networks to identify how diachronic variations on hunter-gatherer settlement networks affected the transmission of cultural traits and the spread of technological innovations.
