Short biography

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology with a major in Archaeology (2013) and an Archaeology degree (2015) from the University of Chile. I also completed a Master of Science in the Technology and Analysis of Archaeological Materials (2016) at the Institute of Archaeology of University College London (UCL) and a PhD in Society and Culture at the University of Barcelona. Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher in the ERC project “LArcHer: breaking barriers between Science and Heritage approaches to Levantine Rock Art through Archaeology, Heritage Science and IT” at the University of Barcelona.
