I obtained my academic degree at the University of Seville (Spain), completing my master’s degree at the University of Southampton (U.K.). After that, I started my PhD at the Institute of Archaeology of Mérida, part of the Spanish Superior Council of Scientific Research (CSIC), where I stayed from 2004 to 2011. In this research institution, I completed my doctoral thesis. In fact, the research work carried out enabled me to present my dissertation in Spanish and Italian and to be awarded the certification of European PhD. This doctoral thesis has been published in 2013 in the Anejos de Archivo Español de Arqueología, one of the most recognized archaeological editorials in Spain. My work in the Institute of Archaeology of Mérida allowed me to participate in different leading research projects of national and international scope, in which I have always had an active and participative profile. At an international level, I would like to highlight the research work carried out at the Università degli Studi di Padova (Italy). I worked as a researcher in the Prometeo Program, developed in the Republic of Ecuador. Between 2013 and 2014, I worked in the heritage management of the canton Ibarra, under the government of the Gobierno Autónomo Descentralizado de San Miguel de Ibarra, a territory with an outstanding archaeological and historical wealth. Between 2014 and 2015, I developed a similar project in Yachay-Ciudad del Conocimiento; the first University of Experimental Technological Research of Ecuador, in this way comprising the first Latin American hub of knowledge. In conjunction with this research and management, I am part of the investigation group TEP 199: Technology and Environment in the Pablo de Olavide University (Spain) and I am a member of the Asociación de Estudios Americanos del Principado de Asturias (Spain). Currently, I coordinate scientific conventions of this institution in Ecuador. On the other hand, I am associated investigator of the Universidad Autónoma de Chile. In 2015, I obtained a scholarship for postdoctoral studies at the Instituto de Estudos Medievais (NOVA FCSH), thanks to which I was able to develop my research project: Change and continuity in rural early medieval Hispania. Comparative multidisciplinary approach to the countrysides of Egitania (Idanha-a-Velha, Portugal) and Emerita (Mérida, Spain). The working hypothesis that we propose as the basis of our research is the product of work carried out in the Emerita territory and argues that the early medieval countryside was organised in a complex system of settlements that varied from one region to another in the Iberian Peninsula. In this way, the project aims to compare the change and continuity of the Emerita countryside between the 4th and 8th centuries with the Egitania territory in the same period. I obtained a research position at NOVA FCHS in 2018, attached to the Instituto de Estudos Medievais (IEM). Since then, it has concentrated much of its activity on two research projects. On the one hand, the project Change and continuity in rural early medieval Hispania. Comparative multidisciplinary approach to the countrysides of Egitania (Idanha-a-Velha, Portugal) and Emerita (Mérida, Spain). On the other hand, Continuity, transformation and change. A multidisciplinary approach to the study of the rural World between the Tejo and Mondego rivers in the Early Medieval period (ss. IV-VIII). Both projects, which are interrelated, are concerned with the analysis of the political, social, economic and cultural relations established between urban and rural communities during the Early Middle Ages. In addition, it is important to highlight the interdisciplinary nature of the research carried out, where both the application of non-invasive archaeological analysis and the work concerned with the valuation of the Cultural Heritage of the territories analysed should be emphasized.
