Current position: Full Professor of Medieval Archaeology, Department of Prehistory, Archaeology, Ancient History, Greek Philology and Latin Philology, University of Alicante, Spain (since 2003). Director of the INAPH-University Institute of Research in Archaeology and Heritage in the University of Alicante (2014-19). Previous Positions: pre-doctoral Fellow (1986-1989), an Assistant Lecturer (1990-95), an Associate Professor (1996-2002).

I am an expert in medieval archaeology, with particular interest in the transition from Antiquity to the Early Middle Ages and, especially, in the study of al-Andalus and medieval Islam. My main lines of research are the settlement, the city, the buildings and the Late Antique, medieval and Islamic material culture, as well as the Islamization process and the creation of the early al-Andalus. I earned a doctorate in the University of Alicante in 1992 with a thesis on the Cora of Tudmir (La Cora de Tudmir: de la antigüedad tardía al mundo islámico. Poblamiento y cultura material).  My leadership skills are also reflected in my institutional responsibilities and commissions of trust. In recent years I have become a part of the national and international committees. Furthermore, I have held different positions for assessing and managing research in the main national assessment agencies (CNEAI, ANEP, ANECA).

I have also been a pioneer in my teaching activities. I have been responsible for the consolidation of medieval and post medieval archaeology in the Spanish university field, creating a new teaching, research and professional perspective that is nowadays consolidated. In this regard, I encouraged the creation of the Master in Professional Archaeology and Comprehensive Management of the Heritage of the University of Alicante in 2007. This is the first one in Spain and I coordinated it until 2010. I took part in the creation of the curricula for the history degree and I teach lessons in general, medieval and post medieval archaeology. I also wrote one of the main reference handbooks in the Spanish language, Arqueología, Introducción a la historia material de las sociedades del pasado, which has been reissued several times. In recent years, I have directed 8 theses that were successfully defended. I also supervise 10 projects and I have guided more than 30 master dissertations.
