PhD in Medieval History at the University of Barcelona, my research field is the production and distribution of medieval coarsewares in medieval and postmedieval ages. I was trained in Ceramic Petrograpgy at the University of Sheffield in 2008 and in XRF and XRD techniques at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London (UCL) since 2012 to 2014. I have been coordinator of the archeological preventive fieldwork at Castell de Penyafort (Barcelona) and Sant Llorenç de la Sanabra. I teach at the University of Barcelona since 2015, and I currently am co-director of the archaeological research project developed at the Site of Santa Margarida (Martorell), and member of the Research Team working at the Iberian and Medieval Settlement of L’Esquerda. My most recent research has been devoted to the analyses of early medieval peopling processes at the Upper Arlanza Basin (Burgos, Spain) through the analysis of ceramic materials.
