I’m working as research coordinator at IPHES ( a research centre created in 2005 within the CERCA program by the Generalitat de Catalunya, and supported by different public institutions, especially Universitat Rovira i Virgili and Ajuntament de Tarragona. Trained in Cultural Heritage Management, I had contributed to the Atapuerca ( and related projects since 1990 both in the fieldwork and administratively from backstage. I developed activities as a Project Manager at the Area de Prehistòria at URV (1999-2005) and as a Corporate Communication Manager at Fundación Atapuerca (2000-2006). I was also one of the founders and Chief Executive Officer (1999-2006) of Arqueoline, SL ( a spin-off transferred outside university in 2006. Currently my primary role and duty is the assistance to IPHES’ staff, to prospect new broad research boundaries and to assist in planning projects and grant applications.
