Short Bio

I am Invited Auxiliar Researcher at the University of Algarve and working in the Interdisciplinary Center for Archaeology and Evolution of Human Behaviour (ICArEHB). I focus lithic stone-tool raw materials, technology and typology. I have been working from the Early Paleolithic to the Bronze Age in Portugal, but mostly between the Middle Paleolithic and the Mesolithic. I also have some experience in Middle Stone Age stone tools from South Africa. I approach data in relation to the climate, environment and landscape of the past in order to infer human behavior, adaptation, territory and culture. I target high-resolution and quantitative information, for which I often used refitting and geochemical analysis.
