I completed my undergraduate at the University of Alcalá de Henares (Spain) and my DEA and PhD at the University of Cantabria (Spain). My PhD dissertation (2010) involved the mineralogical and chemical analysis of Neolithic pottery in the Cantabrian region (North of Spain). It was focused on the characterization of the different manufacturing processes as an approach to technology transfer mechanisms differentiating between the local and the foreign origin of the vessels allowing the connection of this technology with the subsistence basis.

In 2015, I joined to the BioArCh group and the Department of Archaeology at the University of York as a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Research Fellow. My current research project (CerAM) is focused on the role of pottery in the transition to farming on the Atlantic Coast of Europe. By applying the latest chemical and molecular analysis we aim at reconstructing the use of pottery during this key transition of Atlantic Southern Europe.
