About Me

I am an archaeologist specialized in pottery studies from the Iron Age and the beginning of the Romanization in the SW Iberian Peninsula.
At present, my research activities focus on the development of the Phoenician-Turdetanian pottery tradition in the SW Iberian Peninsula and its transition after the Roman conquest.
I have worked as a Post-Doc Professor for the University of Seville and the Adam Mickiewicz University of Poznan. I also did several Post-Doctoral research stays in Rome and Vienna.
I finished my PhD in Archaeology at the University of Sevilla (Spain) in September 2017. My dissertation focused on the production and distribution of amphorae during the Late Iron Age in the lower Guadalquivir valley. I have also developed research works about Late Bronze Age pottery, Baetican amphorae and Hellenistic tableware in Punic and Turdetan pre-Roman communities.
