Research Interests

Currently I am doing my PhD at the Universidade do Algarve and the main goal of my research is to analyse, in a multidisciplinary perspective, all the personal adornments from the Mesolithic and Early Neolithic contexts on the centre and south Portugal in order to fully understand what were the technological, economical and social changes that occurred during the transition from hunter-gathering to farming subsistence.

Short Bio

I had my B.A. in Cultural Heritage and Archaeology at Universidade do Algarve, Portugal, in 2015, during which I earned an Erasmus grant to spent a semester at Universidad de Barcelona. Currently doing my PhD in Prehistoric Archaeology at Universidade do Algarve under the supervision of Dr. Nuno Bicho. I have participated in excavations in Portugal (at the Paleolithic site of Vale Boi and at the Mesolithic Muge Shellmiddens, Muge) and abroad (at Star Carr, United Kingdom).
My laboratory experience includes analysis, both macro and microscopic, of malacological remains, mainly shell adornments from the Mesolithic and Upper Paleolithic and database management of materials from several research projects.
