Short Bio

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Algarve, currently working on the human adaptation during the Terminal Pleistocene of Northern Africa. My research focuses on the use of lithic technology as a proxy for human response during the times of crises.

For my PhD thesis I am focusing on understanding the stone tool production related behaviours of the Iberomaurusian culture in North-Western Africa and how they can help us understand human response to climatic instabilities. I am also involved in projects regarding the hunter-gatherer societies in Morocco, Belgium, Mongolia and Serbia.
