Biography

BA History in Universitat de València (2010), MA Archaeology (2012) and MA in Teaching Training (2013). International PhD in Mediterranean Prehistory and Archaeology with the dissertation: Caves as ritual spaces in Iberian Iron Ages: the cases of Kelin, Edeta and Arse (2017).

She has also developed her research abroad: Archéologie des Sociétés Méditerranéennes (UMR5140) (Montpellier, France) (2010-2011), Department of Archaeology (Durham University, UK) (2015, 2019-2020), School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts (Merced, UC, USA) (2016), as well as a yearly postdoctoral research stay in Durham University (POSTD-Generalitat Valenciana-European Social Fund Fellow, 2019-2020).

Her research is focused on the Iberian ritual caves (6th c.- 1st c. BC.). She analyzes not only the artefacts, the context and the sacred landscape, but also the sensorial and emotional experiences personalized on these natural scenarios, considering their importance across time, their memories and the ancestors related to them. From 2018, she codirects the archaeological excavations in Cueva del Sapo (Chiva, València).
