Biography

I am an Emergia Researcher (Junta de Andalucía) at Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, Universidad de Granada (Spain) and PI of the Project ARPA (Computational Analysis of exchange networks in Andalusian Late Prehistory).

My research interests deal with the study of lithic industries made on “non-traditional” raw materials, such as slate, rock crystal and quartz and how some of their mechanical characteristics impact the knapping. Furthermore, I am also interested on the analysis of long distance networks during Late Prehistory and on prehistoric open-air rock art.
