Short biography

PhD in Archaeology from the University of Alicante. His research focuses on the everyday life of protohistoric Balearic society from the study of their dwellings, from a materialist and feminist perspective, paying attention to the relations of these groups with contemporary Phoenician-Punic Mediterranean communities. He has co-directed archaeological excavations in Alicante and Menorca as part of university research teams and has worked as a freelance archaeologist and museum educator. He is currently a Margarita Salas postdoctoral researcher, developing a line of research on musicality and sonority in the natural and built spaces of the protohistoric Balearic archipelago within the framework of the ERC Artsoundscapes project. She is also a member of the Archaeologists Project of the University of Barcelona, in which she analyses the role played by women archaeologists and historians who have not had the historiographical relevance they deserve.
