Short Bio

I am an archaeobotanist, specialized in charcoal analyses and my PhD in Archaeology, in the University of Algarve, focused the firewood acquisition modalities of the Mesolithic hunters and gatherers of Muge shellmiddens, project funded by FCT. I completed a B.A. in Archaeology in Nova University of Lisbon and did my Master in Quaternary Science in the University of the Basque Country. I have been collaborating in several research projects in Portugal and Spain, from Palaeolithic to Medieval contexts, as archaeobotany specialist or co-director in archaeological excavation. I have teaching experience in Archaeobotany in the University of Algarve, and I supervised a B.A. final dissertation in charcoal analyses. I published my research in book chapters, international peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, organized sessions and presented papers and posters at international scientific meetings.
